Description Derek Anderson 2004-11-23 12:15:41 EST
Description of problem:
Create a VG with two PVs where one of the PVs is bigger than the
other.  Then create an LV on that VG (2 stripes, 64K) with a size that
is more than twice the size of the smallest PV.

Results:  Fails silently
Expect:   Error message that there were not enough free extents on the
smaller PV to complete this operation.

I am now getting an error similar to the following, which is what is

lvcreate command failed. Command attempted: "/usr/sbin/lvcreate -n LV1
-l 10000 -i 2 -I 64 VG1" - System Error Message:   Insufficient
allocatable extents suitable for parallel use for logical volume LV1:
10000 required

Verified in system-config-lvm-0.9.17-1.0.
