I believe you want to do a 'vgcfgrestore -nw0 /dev/hda8; vgcfgrestore -nw0
/dev/hdb3'.  Let me know if that fixes things.  And remember, do *not* do a
vgscan right after your vgcfgrestore because it will revert to the previous
state.  Simply run the vgcfgrestore command, and then try the 'vgchange -ay'
to activate the volume group.

Let me know if that fixes things.
