Snapdrive errors when using "-fs -nolvm" options on 4.1.1 (linux redhat 5.3)

Hi Guys,

  i am getting errors whenever i error when i do a "snapdrive storage create -lun /vol/xxxx/ -lunsize 1g -fs /mnt/test1 -nolvm -igroup serverA" Without the two options where no partitions are created everything seems fine.From the sd-trace files it seems to have some issues with the sfdisk utility in the native mpio config for redhat linux 5.3.

The error i am getting are

" 0001-742 Admin error: Error creating file system /mnt/test1 :mke2fs 1.39 (29-may-2006)

/dev/sdb1 is apparently in use by the system

Anyone has encounter this?

Hi Kelvin,

Did you check the IMT for supported configuration?  I'm showing RHEL 5.3 supported in various versions and protocols.  I took a look at the BURT db and got a few hits with similar issues but most were on versions prior to 3.0.  Check out Burt 228115 which had a similar issue but on the SUSE platform.  If  you're still having problems, check out the config checker http://now.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/snapdrive_config_checker_unix/ and post a snapdc for the problem node.  http://now.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/snapdrive_data_collector_unix/

Thanks,
