RE: [linux-lvm] Data loss - vg gone



Jens,

Actually, I managed to recover the volume by using vgcfgrestore.  After I
restored the VGDA the filesystem came right back up.

Many thanks to he LVM team for making sure the metadata is backed up! :-)

Possible solution (worked here):

You need to edit the disk signatures and for each PV, insert all the
_other_ PV signatures in the right place. Go to #lvm on
irc.openprojects.org and bug 'roadrunner', he walked me through this and
it
worked. ;)
