    LVM diskgroup not listet in /dev




      we are using a VMWare 5.1 guest SLES11.3 x86_64 and try to use LVM with ext3 as a datastore for database datafiles.


      The problem is that the LVM VolGroup do not show up in /dev


      We can see the vm devices in fdisk and created a volgroup to add the disks.


      But the VolGoup will not be mapped to /dev/ORAPOOL but we do not understand why


      lboptb01:/dev # pvs
