Hi there,

I created a physical volume using pvcreate command on /dev/sda. When I
checked the partition entries in MBR for /dev/sda using fdisk observed
that no partitions were displayed.

Why pvcreate doesnt make partition entry with type 8e in MBR? Which
partition entry gets used in case whole disk is made PV?
