I’ve created a new partition on /dev/sda on my CentOS machine after which fdisk -l gives output as:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 3500 28009327+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 3501 6527 24314377+ 83 Linux
Now, when I run partprobe I get the following error:
Error: Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition
/dev/sda3 — Device or resource busy. This means Linux won’t know about any changes you made to /dev/sda3 until you reboot — so you shouldn’t mount it or use it in any way before rebooting. Warning: The kernel was unable to re-read the partition table on /dev/sda
(Device or resource busy). This means Linux won’t know anything about the modifications you made until you reboot. You should reboot your computer before doing anything with /dev/sda.
I’m using parted rpm version “parted-1.8.1-29.el5”. Is it some issue with this version or with the way I’m using this command?
