[linux-lvm] Problems with pvmove



Hi Folks,

i'v got a volume group with three physical volumes (see below for
details) and one logical volume in it. Now i want to remove one PV.

I try to empty the PV with

 > pvmove /dev/hdb5
 > pvmove -- moving physical extents in active volume group "meine_volumes"
 > pvmove -- WARNING: moving of active logical volumes may cause data loss!
 > pvmove -- do you want to continue? [y/n] y
 > pvmove -- ERROR reading input physical volume "/dev/hdb5"

 > pvmove -- ERROR "pv_move_pe(): read input PV" pv_move_pe

 > pvmove -- ERROR "pv_move_pe(): read input PV" moving physical extents

On the other hand - i was able to clear another PV (/dev/hdc5) from the
same PG with the above command and then remove it from the VG.

I'm using SuSEs 2.2.14-Kernel on a Debian 2.2 i386 with lvm-0.8final.

any ideas?

Nils
