doesn't contain a valid partition table

July 18, 2014 3.2k views

Hi,

The command

fdisk -l returns

Disk /dev/vda: 42.9 GB, 42949672960 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 83220 cylinders, total 83886080 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Disk /dev/vda doesn't contain a valid partition table

This happened after my server blocked, returned well

Does anyone know how to solve?

thanks

Hi!

That’s not actually unusual. Your droplet is a KVM virtual machine with only one filesystem. This just means that you can not create new partitions.
