There are not enough free partitions or not enough physical volumes

crfs: 0506-973 Cannot create logical volume for log device.


  1. Check the volume group you are trying to create a file system
  2. Look for enough FREE PPs avaiable on the volume group
  3. Lets say, you found that FREE PPs is equal to zero. Then you need to reduce atleast 1 PP of space from the file system which is sharing the same VG.
  4. Please keep in mind, whenever you create a file system a log device (LV) expands.
