[linux-lvm] vgcfgrestore error !



Hi,

After a reboot I have lost a volume (/dev/lvm1) but not an other (/dev/lvm2)
(vgscan doesn't see lvm1 !)

I am trying to restore it, using vgcfgrestore, but I have the message below :

# vgcfgrestore -n lvm1 /dev/lvm1
vgcfgrestore -- can't restore part of active volume group "lvm1"
vgcfgrestore [-d|--debug] [-f|--file VGConfPath] [-l[l]|--list [--list]]
        [-n|--name VolumeGroupName] [-h|--help]
        [-o|--oldpath OldPhysicalVolumePath] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose]
        [--version] [PhysicalVolumePath]

# vgcfgrestore -n lvm1 /dev/lvmOLD
vgcfgrestore -- invalid physical volume "/dev/lvmOLD"
vgcfgrestore [-d|--debug] [-f|--file VGConfPath] [-l[l]|--list [--list]]
        [-n|--name VolumeGroupName] [-h|--help]
        [-o|--oldpath OldPhysicalVolumePath] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose]
        [--version] [PhysicalVolumePath]

WHY this message !
What do I do ?
