[linux-lvm] vgcfgrestore error !



Hello !

I  got strang stuff going on with my lvm groups...

It crashed after a reboot and i also lost lvm files in /etc.

Now my group is unrecognized...

look at this : (the vg name is lithium)

the devices are /dev/hdf1 /dev/hdg1 /dev/hdh1 /dev/hdc1 /dev/hdb1

vgimport  -f lithium /dev/hdf1
vgimport -- ERROR "pv_read_all_pv_of_vg(): PV number" reading data of volume
group "l"

vgimport  -f lithium /dev/hdh1
vgimport -- ERROR: wrong number of physical volumes to import volume group
"lithium"

It seems that volume group name that vgimport reports for /dev/hdf1 is "l"
(as you can see with the vgimport utility outpout)
and the rests of the disks report it as "lithium", which is the correct
name.

Now if try to import the vg with all the devices, it says that /dev/hdf1 is
not in the same volume group than /dev/hdg1

But if i pvdisplay hdf1 and hdg1 :

--- Physical volume ---

How is it possible that group names match with pvdisplay, but vgimport tells
me hdf1 is in group "l" ?????

Can you help ?

Thanks !
