[linux-lvm] Crashed drive, cant get upgraded/partial lvm back online to rescue it!



Hi, Im having some trouble with a crashed disk...
The crashed disk seems to hang the whole system when reading from it so
I couldn't pvmove/pvremove/resize the fs... I had to take it out...

The lvm I was using v1 but I have since upgraded to v2 and upgraded the
lvm...
This seem to have went fine and I tried to activate it with the partial
mode.. without luck... this is the output on all the commands I can
think of that can be to any use...

What I need is to activate the VG with the rest of the disks and try to
restore the data from the disks to new disks... 

When I do a vgscan I get the "device ???? has been left open." What does
that mean? Do I have a chance to rescue my data ? I have no backups of
the data on the lvm so I really would like to bring it back... 

My previous posts can be used as a reference to this problem, yes its
still the same problem... but now with the upgraded lvm2...

If there is any more info needed ill be more than happy to provide it...
thank you
