[linux-lvm] vgscan ERROR



Hi,

I had a vg called lv setup with two full disk in it (hde1 40G, hdeg 4G)
In this there are four logical volumes:

swap - striped on hde and hdg
home_a - main disk
home_b - mirroed with raid 1
root - my reiserfs root file system.

Once I finish moving root to lvm and was able to get reiserfs snapshots work
I decided to add my old root partn to lvm.  So I did the following:

cfdisk /dev/hda and changed the type of hda3 to 8e and wrote the block.
pvcreate /dev/hda3
vgextend /dev/hda3 lv

now running vgscan gives me:

oscar# vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- found active volume group "lv"
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_read_with_pv_and_lv(): allocated LE of LV" can't get data of volume group "lv" from physical volume(s)
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_read_with_pv_and_lv(): allocated LE of LV" creating "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d"

I am using ac21 with the 090 debs off the sistima ftp site...

How do I fix this????

TIA
Ed Tomlinson

PS. all is not completly lost, my backup is still running... and I finially realized that
just because ide-tape refuses to read my tapes using st and ide-scsi works...
