Re: [linux-lvm] LVM1 and a dying disk (fixed)



# vgchange -ay
vgchange -- volume group "files_vg" successfully activated


I had a duplicate PV uuid for some reason.


The LVM2 vgcfgrestore didn't like the old LVM1 metadata format and LVM2's vgconvert said files_vg doesn't exist. Catch 22. Combining the -u switch in LVM2's pvcreate with a regular pvcreate and vgcfgrestore in LVM1 finally solved that.

Very, very scary. Now to see if reiserfsck's --rebuild_tree works. :-)
