The pvcreate looks great as does the vgcreate. I then try to lvcreate through yast and get the following error. Return code of the output was 98, lvcreate -- error: VGDA in kernel and lvmtab are not consistent: please run vgscan. I run vgscan and get the same thing. I think I did everything correctly. Can I view the VGDA in the kernel?

Just by running the LVM tools.

LVM1 stores work copies of the VGDA (i.e. the metadata) in /etc/lvmtab and
/etc/lvmtab.d/. Is that file and the directory write accessable and is
there enough space (couple of MB is sufficient)?
