It's a valid question. Although I'm curious about the use case. The
only time I've partitioned an LV rather than directly formatting it,
is when using the LV as a backing store for a qemu/kvm VM via
virsh/virt-manager. However in that case, to access the partition map
and activate the individual partitions before mounting them, I used
kpartx -a. Chris Murphy
I'm not actually partitioning a logical volume ( can you even do that?
:-) ), I'm building a logical volume from two separate physical volumes
which are partitions on a disk. Example: /dev/sda4, /dev/sdb4 are PV's,
part of 1 VG, and then a single LV in the VG.
When I do a parted -l on the system is when it gives that error.
