[linux-lvm] Logical volume contains an incomplete mapping table



Hello, linux-lvm-list,

I write to you because I couldn't yet find a solution to the given
situation yet:

Suse 9.3 Pro, 3 IDE-disks with various partitions ...

Yesterday I decided to reorganize things, moved data and freed up some
partitions. Changed their ID to 8e with fdisk, rebooted.

fdisk -l displayed them fine, so I went on to create a Volume Group.
Added three PVs, created an LV with xfs on it, worked great.

Moved data back to this new LV, cleared up two more partitions.
Changed their ID, rebooted, added them to the Group.

Somehow one of these partitions weren't listed in pvscan as member of
the group.

And it started telling me

3 PV(s) found for VG Gruppe1: expected 5

Hmmm...

Much fiddling from then ... trying to get things working again,
web-research ...

"vgreduce --removemissing" sounded good, but didn't get me back ...

Right now I have:

root oops1:~ # pvdisplay
  Found duplicate PV bmKfBpNQfkiKBMli7WfG9fXP4aWR6huV: using /dev/hdc2 not /dev/hda1

  Logical volume (LV01) contains an incomplete mapping table.

  Volume group "Gruppe1" doesn't exist  


No clue about that duplicate PV ...

Is there any way out of this without losing the data? I assume it is
still valid, but I don't know how to access it properly.

No problem to recreate the LVM if I can pull off the data before doing
that ...

Please let me know any pointers or hints, I'll also provide more
information if needed.

Please also CC: your replies to me as I am not (yet) a subscriber to
this list.

Thanks a lot.
