RE: [linux-lvm] My VG is gone...



I will be formating 311Gb of hard drives today.  These drives were 40% full.
This is the second time that LVM has bitten me.  The first time I tried to
expand a VG, the VG was gone when the machine rebooted.  Same thing this
time.  AND THERE IS APEARANTLY NO WAY TO RECOVER!  It seems that all of the
vg data is recorded in each member pv.  So, why isn't there a utility to
recover a vg in this situation?  This is very fragile!

I have already reformated my hard disks, alas. I didn't have time to
wait
for a solution. But If someone would have helped me or suppllied code
that
fixed the problem, it could have beed the start of a Doctor LVM project.
I
think there should really be crash recover tools for any file system and
LVM system since they all do crash some times.
