"Advant Station 500 Workstations, Loading software into Advant Station 500 on 36Gbyte disk requires change in setup" resolves the following:
- Advant Station 500 Workstations, Loading software into Advant Station 500 on 36Gbyte disk requires change in setup
Loading the software on to a 36Gbyte disk may not work. If not this error message is presented:
“ERROR: The root volume parameters may result in a nonbootable configuration (the root volume is the volume group containing the root file system). You must go to the “Modify volume group parameters” screen and adjust the parameters. Reducing the “Maximum physical extents” or “Maximum logical volumes” will probably have the most effect. (To compensate for fewer physical extents you may need to increase the “The physical extent size” parameter.)
You may need to move very large disks into a separate volume group or limit the number of disks in the root volume group.
See your LVM documentation for more info.”
