You shouldn't be able to get that message with LVM 0.9.1 beta3 at all.
Are you by accident using an older version?

Yes, please try that.

If vgscan still complains and you have your /etc/lvmconf/vg.conf (assuming
that your VG is named vg :) VGDA backup file you can reactivate your
VG with:

rm -rf /etc/lvmtab*
mkdir /etc/lvmtab.d
echo -ne "vg\0" > /etc/lvmtab
cp /etc/lvmconf/vg.conf /etc/lvmtab.d/vg
vgchange -ay
