Re: [linux-lvm] Big problem with my LVM



Dear Guys..
I m also having a prob with LVM..
i configured LVM at SuSe 9.3 worked perfectly fine..
unfortunately my linux got some prob..
i restored it using 1st cd of suse 9.3 ... linux got recovered.. perfectly.
but LVM lost..
1st i tried to recreate the VG with same name and same PV
but it didnt showed my data.
after then i tried restored that .. but still my data is vanished..

Is there any way to get back / recover my data..?????
