This one should be pretty easy...
Effectively, you want to keep the primary mirror devices, so do:
lvconvert -m0 <vg/lv>
to down convert them to linear devices.
Then remove PV1 (vgreduce), add a new disk to your system, add it to your vg (vgextend), and finally, up-convert the linear devices to mirrors again:
lvconvert -m1 <vg/lv>

So you can't just add a new disk and use pvmove to move extents off of the failing disk?


You could if it was a linear device, but we are still working on the proper stacking of mirrors.
