Re: [linux-lvm] Lost my physical volume on reboot?



Ron,

your output below shows, that your partition table on /dev/hdc is gone.

Could you please try to

 - recreate the partition table with the same content as before;
   you potentially need a reboot after this in order to make the kernel
   recognize the new partition setup; check /proc/partitions before
 - pvscan again
 - in case the PV shows up again "vgscan;vgchange -ay"
 - if pvscan doesn't find your PV run "vgcfgrestore -n vg02 /dev/hdc1"
 - and rerun "vgscan;vgchange -ay"

IHTH (I Hope That Helps ;-)

Regards,
