RE: [linux-lvm] Renumbered drives hosed VG.



Well, if I do a vgscan, it should find all of the VG's, right?  The log
below indicates that this isn't happening.  All I want to do is create a
large volume, move the data from the Database VG onto that new volume, then
incorporate the space used by Database into the new volume and resize my
filesystem.  This should not take 2 days!

Any help would be most appreciated.

[root filmore jdiehl]# vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- found active volume group "Database"
vgscan -- "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d" successfully created
vgscan -- WARNING: you may not have an actual VGDA backup of your volume
group


[root filmore jdiehl]# vgcreate Database2 -s 8M /dev/sdc6
vgcreate -- "/dev/sdc6" is no new physical volume
vgcreate -- physical volume "/dev/sdc6" already belongs to volume group
"Database2"
