Without further information, I can't provide a solution.

Do you mean you successfully run "vgexport VGName" on your deactivated VG
named "VGName"?

What do you mean with "other disk"?

The vgimport(8) command has the synopsis:

   vgimport VGName PhysicalVolumePath [PhysicalVolumePath...]

If you exported the VG just to test the feature as you mentioned,
you should run pvscan which should list you all of the physical volume
pathes belonging to the exported VG and feed those pathes into vgimport.

See "man vgimport" for further details.

No, you can just import it.

There's a hack to reactivate it in case you still have a valid VGDA backup,
but let me first understand what your actual problem is, before we can decide
to try that.
