[RHEL4] physicalextentsize 4KB is supported (lvm2 - vgcreate manpage)
Last modified: 2018-10-19 15:04:41 EDT
Manpage for vgcreate needs to specify the correct range for lvm2 physicalextentsize.
"vgcreate in lvm2 allows 1 KB for minimum value in source code. It mentions
only for LVM1. should mention LVM2 also, since RHEL4 is using LVM2."
The manpage for vgcreate delivered in lvm2-2.01.08-1.0.RHEL4 doesn't state the
correct physicalextentsize for LVM2.
-s, --physicalextentsize PhysicalExtentSize[kKmMgGtT]
Sets the physical extent size on physical volumes of this vol-
ume group. A size suffix (k for kilobytes up to t for ter-
abytes) is optional, megabytes is the default if no suffix is
present. Values can be from 8 KB to 16 GB in powers of 2.
The 8KB to 16GB range is specific to LVM1, it should state the correct limits
for LVM2 which would be 1KB to MAX.
