Re: [linux-lvm] Can't find LVM partition



Darryl,

as Patrick said, vgscan should find your LVM partition fine unless it got
written over.

In case just the LVM metadata at the beginning of that partition (~ < 1MB)
got overwritten during install, backups of /etc/lvmconf/* and vgcfgrestore(8)
are your friends as Sander metioned. If more is gone you probably wont't get
back a whole lot of useful data.

Any progress so far?
