I am studying for RHCSA with the book by Asghar Ghori. I use virtualbox 7 and RHEL 9 on my macbook. Currently I am in Chapter 14 about Stratis and doing the exercise to create and confirm a pool and file system. But An error occurred and I cannot move forward.

Here are the steps and the error.

  1. first confirm the disk availability
$ lsblk /dev/sdf
sdf    8:80   0   1G  0 disk
  1. create a pool and verify
$ sudo stratis pool create bookpool /dev/sdf
$ sudo stratis pool list
Name      Total / Used / Free               Properties    UUID                                  Alerts
bookpool  1 Gib / 5126.82 Mib / 507.18 Mib  ~Ca, ~Cr, Op  7fe605a5-8620-4c65-9cfl-326270784c78  WS001
  1. display the block device used to form the pool
$ sudo stratis blockdev list bookpool
Pool Name   Device Node   Physical Size   Tier
bookpool    /dev/sdf             1 Gib    Data

so far so good. But here's the problem.

  1. The fourth step should create a file system called bookfs in the bookpool and return no output. But I got an error instead.
$ sudo stratis filesystem create bookpool bookfs
Execution failed:
stratisd failed to perform the operation that you requested. It returned the following information 
via the D-Bus: ERROR: Command failed:  cmd: "/usr/sbin/mkfs.xfs" "-f" "-q" "/dev/dm-7" 
"-m" "uuid=26c8b46b-2a4b-44db-947d-e8fd89268fdc", exit reason: 1 stdout: stderr: log stripe unit 
(1048576 bytes) is too large (maximum is 256KiB) log stripe unit adjusted to 32Kib
mkfs.xfs: libxfs_device_zero write failed: No space left on device.

I searched the error message but no luck. Can anyone please help me out?

  1. Increase the block device size as 2GB and proceed as usual
  2. Run the filesystem command with --size option like the one below
    sudo stratis filesystem create --size 10GiB pool_name filesystem_name
  • Increasing the device size to 5GB worked. 1 through 4GB didn't work. Thank you.
