[linux-lvm] Missing logical volume



Hi,

The following is on an Ubuntu 7.04 server running LVM2 that I have remote access to. I
have put the output of vgscan, vgdisplay etc, various logs and a copy the
archive and backup directories at http://www.dubh.id.au/lvm/ with more
details of the problem in 00-notes. 

I had a lvm volume that held a cryptsetup encrypted volume[1]. The server was
rebooted without unmounting the encrypted volume. On reboot the lvm volume
wasn't present in /dev/mapper.

Vgdisplay displayed an error saying something similar to "UUID
Z1tlHa-60OU-iymQ-nQJu-z9OD-abno-PkxUC5 not found" (sorry the original error
wasn't recorded, but the UUID string is correct).

At the time it was noted that the boot order of the drives had changed and
was thought we were just missing a small partition off one of the disks.
'vgreduce --removemissing lvm_vol_grp_1' was run. This stopped the error
from occurring but the volume still wasn't present in /dev/mapper.

We have since realised that one of the drives (/dev/sdd) isn't being
recognised on boot. All other drives and partitions are shown correctly in
the output of pvscan.

Would someone be able to please look at the information provided and point
me in the direction of a solution. 

Many thanks,

Nigel

[1] I mention this in case cryptsetup is somehow involved.

Here is the output from various scans;
