[linux-lvm] Removing an old disk, and some vgexport/import love..



Title: Message

Helu,

 

I am in dire need of some help.I recently removed an old disk from my PV and added a new one  

 in place of the old one.

e.g.

           

pvmove garage /dev/hdj1 /dev/hde1 (hde1 being the new drive)

 

The physical extents moved over to the new drive and everything was looking good until

I made a pretty big mistake, I figured I’d need to export the group ‘garage’ and import it.

Wrong! Now when I go and try to import my group it freaks stating:

           

            # vgimport garage /dev/hde1 /dev/hdg1 /dev/hdf1

vgimport -- ERROR: wrong number of physical volumes to import volume group "garage"

 

I can’t do a vgcfgrestore either, because it is currently exported and I am not sure if that would
fix anything anyways… Here is some more information:

 

            # pvscan

pvscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)

pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdg1"  is in EXPORTED VG "garage" [74.55 GB / 0 free]

pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hde1"  is in EXPORTED VG "garage" [76.33 GB / 0 free]

pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdf1"  is in EXPORTED VG "garage" [74.52 GB / 60.21 GB free]

pvscan -- total: 3 [225.42 GB] / in use: 3 [225.42 GB] / in no VG: 0 [0]

 

            vgscan –d output can be found at: http://www.planetgarage.net/vgscan.txt (long)
