[linux-lvm] lvm missing uuid



Hi


Im having trouble with a drive. I complains of a missing uuid.

I removed the drive from my server, and inserted a new clean drive for
testing. The removed drive was placed in cover for protection.
It contained the OS ( Scientific Linux 4.9 ). I reinserted the drive
after my tests.

I then got kernel panic, as the uuid of the one partition was missing.
Its import that i can at least recover data from this drive.

In the meantime I have put in place a replacement. So now the most
important part is to obtain the data from it.

I tried to use pvcreate --restorefile etc, but did not use -ff.

Anymore information I can provide...???
