Re: Antw: Re: [linux-lvm] Problem with vgscan



Dmitri,

had a quick look at the data you send to me directly.

The problem is, that you seem to have lost 3 out of 4 physical volumes
which made up your volume group before.
The remaining logical volume named "neu" had extents allocated on the lost
physical volumes and that's why the error below is displayed because they are
not found any longer.

What happened to the 3 physical volumes?

Did you eventually create them on 3 partitions and changed the partition
types to something else rather than LVM afterwards which causes LVM to ignore
them?

If that assumption is true and you didn't overwrite those partitions,
you might just change the partition type back to LVM and retry
"vgscan;vgchange -ay".

In case those are on disks with open partitions, you need to reboot after
changing the partition types back to LVM.

Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --
