[linux-lvm] recovering data from inside a partitioned lv



Hi,

The following stupid mistake was made :( A pv, vg and lv were created, and then the documentation was misread, and a partition was created inside the lv. Said partition mounted fine, and allowed fs creation along with large amounts of data to be copied. Partition was accessible via /dev/vg1/lv1p1.

Server has been rebooted, and now only /dev/vg1/lv1 is shown. parted can open the lv and shows 1 partition inside, but doesn't understand ext3 volumes, so can't copy the partition to another disk. tune2fs can't see /dev/vg1/lv1p1, or I'd use that to change the fs type to ext2.

Is there a way to undo the stupid mistake and get at the partition inside the logical volume? That is to say, mount the partition, copy the data out and then create the filesystem correctly. Is there a way to force /dev/vg1/lv1p1 to show up again?

Thanks in advance for helping :)
