Re: [linux-lvm] Help.

That didn't work :( Now that I look at it, that drive must have been the first one in the VG/LV :( At least I had most, but not all of the data on that LV backed up. Well, now I know better than to use a drive in a LV that used to be in a computer that was under adverse conditions(like my car), without keeping all the data backed up.

Thanks for all the help,
Ben Konosky

I had a VG that had three PVs in it, one of the PVs failed, is there any way to trick the VG into thinking it only has two PVs in it so I can *try* to mount it and see what data I can pull off the remainder. The file system is reiserfs, and it was the third PV in the group that died.


you mention in our other e-mail, that you had an LV spanning all 3 disks
containig a reiserfs.
If your PV is lost *and* you don't have an actual backup, you'll loose fs
data anyway :-(

If you still want to get the LV *partially* back, you need a replacement
disk/partition of the same size the gone PV had, vgcfgrestore(8) the LVM
metadata to it and run "vgscan;vgchange -ay".

Thanks in advance,
