Device /dev/rbd0 not found (or ignored by filtering).

This document (000001008) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

SUSE Enterprise Storage 5.5
SUSE Enterprise Storage 6
 

Situation

Customer is attempting to create lvm volume on a "rbd mapped" device and gets the following message when running "pvcreate /dev/rbd":

linuxnode4:/dev # pvcreate /dev/rbd0
  Device /dev/rbd0 not found (or ignored by filtering). Please run with -vvv option for more details

Resolution

Add the following line to /etc/lvm/lvm.conf:
types = [ "rbd", 1024 ]

Note: It should be in the "devices" section of the file.

Sample from SLES12 SP3 lvm.conf file:
# List of pairs of additional acceptable block device types found
# in /proc/devices with maximum (non-zero) number of partitions.
# types = [ "fd", 16 ]
types = [ "rbd", 1024 ]

Cause

lvm filter is filtering out /dev/rbd devices. 

Additional Information

 
Example:
 
linuxnode4:/etc/lvm # rbd list rbd-images
RBD-01
 
linuxnode4:/etc/lvm # rbd map --pool rbd-images RBD-01
/dev/rbd0
 
linuxnode4:/etc/lvm # rbd showmapped
id pool       image  snap device
0  rbd-images RBD-01 -    /dev/rbd0
 
> You need to add a line to /etc/lvm/lvm.conf:
>
> types = [ "rbd", 1024 ]
>
> It should be in the "devices" section of the file.
