[linux-lvm] LVM-Metadata



Hi!

As no one seems to answer my previous post, I will try to solve my problem 
by recreating the metadata. Therefore I need to know the size and location 
of the lvm-metadata of a physical volume: Is it located at the beginning 
af a disk (the whole disk is a physical volume) or also at the end? 
Overwriting the metadata should be done with

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=??? (how big is the metadata? I 
don't want to overwrite portions of the data part of a physical volume)

Any help?

Regards,
Stephan
