- Why, after deleting a logical volume that contained a XFS filesystem and creating a new logical volume, do I observe the following error message?
# lvcreate -L 16m -n lv1 vg1 WARNING: xfs signature detected on /dev/vg1/lv1 at offset 0. Wipe it? [y/n]: y Wiping xfs signature on /dev/vg1/lv1. Failed to get offset of the xfs_external_log signature on /dev/vg1/lv1. 1 existing signature left on the device. Logical volume "lv1" created.
