[linux-lvm] Power cut -> partition bug -> LVM problem...



Hi,

Two days ago, I had a power cut (only one second, but...) on my Debian
server and, when it restarted, it could not mount LVM volumes...
I have a boot partition and all the other ressources are on LVM.

I've booted on a live CD and it seems that my fourth disk had lost its
partition table.
With some tools, I think I have restored the partition table (but I'm
not sure). I used :
sfdisk /dev/sdd < backup_sfdisk
It seems OK except I have "Disk identifier: 0x00000000".

Here are the results of some commands :

# vgscan
  Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
  Found volume group "VG_Wilco" using metadata type lvm2

I've modified /etc/lvm/backup/VG_Wilco to put /dev/sdd5 instead
of "unknown device" and then, I've tried :
# vgcfgrestore /etc/lvm/backup/VG_Wilco VG_Wilco
Could not find device with uuid "U3KSpz-6Yf6-QX03-erXL-AnPg-qxF9-1TTFXM"
Segmentation fault

Do you know if I can hope to restore my data ?
Do you have any clue ?

Thank you.

David.
