[linux-lvm] pvmove problem



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hello,

I'm trying to pvmove from a dying disk to a new disk.  I'm using version 1.0.7 
of the LVM tools.  I know that the source disk has bad sectors on it.  I 
figured one of two things would happen with the pvmove:
1)  pvmove would work fine up to the bad sectors, where it would error with 
I/O read errors.  I would then restart the pvmove with PEs that are past the 
bad sectors on the source disk and things would finish.
2)  pvmove would work fine up to the bad sectors, where it would encounter I/O 
read errors.  pvmove would report the errors and say the data is 
lost/corrupt, but continue reading valid/skipping bad sectors until it 
finished.
I fear that I'm being naive about how pvmove will handle bad sectors...  At 
any rate, the error I'm getting is:

[root mills tools]# ./pvmove -vv /dev/sdb1

When I try to specify any random PE > 510 I get:

Is there anything I can do to get the pvmove to finish?

Thanks,
Tim
