Hi We use AoE disks for some of our systems.  Currently, a 15.65Tb filesystem we have is full, I then extended the LVM by a further 4Tb but resize4fs could not handle a filesystem over 16Tb (CentOS 5.5). I then reduced the lvm by the same amount, and attempted to create a new LV, but get this error message in the process

lvcreate -v -ndata2 -L2T -t  aoe

I've run a vgscan but this didn't help. So any ideas what step I've missed to enable me to create the new LV ?
