Re: [linux-lvm] lvm lost after reboot !? how to recover UUID?

Hi Alan,

first of all thx for the quick response.

I already checked for the physical presence and function of the disks, also checked SMART parameters with
smartctl -> everything is fine.

I changed nothing to the installed system. No new kernel, nothing.

devfs was enabled already before.

pvdisplay/vgdisplay didn't find anything (see my previous post).

vgchange -a y can't find a VG, too.

I have absolutely no clue what happened. I already thought maybe there were still some filesystem writes cached
and non flushed, when I rebooted but that would be really strange...

Any more ideas?

First figure out if your disks are there: dmesg|grep [sh]d
Check for partitions: fdisk -l
then see whether LVM stuff is there: pvscan ; vgscan
Look at your distro's boot-up process.... maybe you installed a new kernel and forgot to include the initrd that activates the VGs (via: vgchange -a y)
Or maybe you enabled devfs or something, and the discs now show up with a different device path.
