Re: [linux-lvm] vgscan problem (was vgscan segmentation faults, VG name problems)



Duane,

does pvscan evetually find more than hde (which I assume should be your
_only_ PV in the system) ?
If so, you need to decide, if those can be removed (pvcreate -ff ...).

If not, you might want to restore the metadata to hde and rescan+activate.
(pvcreate -ff /dev/hde;vgcfgrestore -n data_group /dev/hde;vgscan;vgchange -ay).

pvcreate doesn't destroy any data, it just initializes the LVM metadata area
for vgcfgrestore to work.

Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --
