As I said, I'm not sure if I am talking sense,
but my impression is that "vchange -a y" will tell you
what LVM volumes can be found,
and make "available" any that are not already available.

I found during a long saga preupgrading from F-9 to F-10 on a SCSI machine
that for some reason my LVM partitions were not found at one point,
and vgchange brought them to light.

Actually, I have had a few problems with LVM during system upgrades,
and have reluctantly decided to withdraw from the LVM world.
The advantages are greatly outweighed by the disadvantages, in my case.
