Re: [linux-lvm] pb with vgimport



1.0.4 with redhat 7.3 (2.4.18 patched by myself)
More informations :
When i did
vgimport lvmvg1 /dev/hde1 /dev/hdf1 /dev/hdg1 :
vgimports said that only 3 PVs ( of the 4) were given in arguments

but when i did 
vgimport lvmvg1 /dev/hde1 /dev/hdf1 /dev/hdk :
vgimport said : 
vgimport -- ERROR: wrong number of physical volumes to import volume group "lvmvg1
That's why i think that there's a problem with hdk (which is a whole LVM disk not a LVM partition).
But data on this disk seems to be good because i've restore them by changing
PV_EXPlvmvg1PV_EXPPV_EXPPV_EXP
into
PV_IMPlvmvg1 with Linux Disk Editor
Any idea ???

Ps : Sorry for my english ...:">

Thank you for your answer, but I found a solution by editing  disc and 
partitions with Linux Disk Editor ....
Now, everything is ok and I found my data back. 

lvmvg1PV_EXPPV_EXPPV_EXP:  I exported 3 times the VG.  Is the result 
normal??? 
    

Nope :-(

Which LVM version was it?

It would seem that the problem comes from export (or the importation) on 
hdk.

"lvmvg1PV_EXPPV_EXPPV_EXP" looks very strange.
The suffix PV_EXP should only be there once.

Which LVM versions of the tools and driver did you use?
Do you remmeber the steps which lead to this situation?

Please send a bzipped tasball which contains the output files retrieved with

for d in /dev/hd[e-g]1 /dev/hdk
do
	dd if=$d of=`basename $d`.vgda bs=1k count=4k
done

to me directly <mge sistina com> to fix this.
