[linux-lvm] What have I done!?



I was running some kernel version (but I forget which one because I
deleted it! :/  Now, I'm running 2.4.10.  I was running LVM 0.9B7 or B8.
Don't remember.  I upgraded to 1.0 without checking for backwards
compatibility and now my life is a living hell!  I then upgraded to
1.0.1-rc4 in hopes that it would help.  Here's a rundown of my current
confusion as a result of my stupidity:

# /sbin/lvscan
lvscan -- ERROR: VGDA in kernel and lvmtab are NOT consistent; please
run vgscan

# /sbin/vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- found active volume group "HiTiSO3"
vgscan -- "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d" successfully created
vgscan -- WARNING: This program does not do a VGDA backup of your volume
group

(BTW:  whenever I run vgscan, I get these errors all over the place.
The drives are for an LV that is in /proc but not in any of the configs!
I even deleted the /dev file hoping it would kill it)

# /sbin/lvdisplay
lvdisplay -- ERROR: VGDA in kernel and lvmtab are NOT consistent; please

There's a couple things:

1) I deleted everything in /etc/lv* except for anything related to foo3,
yet there is another VG, foo1 in /proc.
2) I can't remove inactive drives from showing up in pvscan

Basically, I just want to delete EVERYTHING EXCEPT for foo3.  I'm going
to try a downgraded kernel with the old programs and the old drivers and
see if that makes any difference (I do have all the configs backed up
for the VGs that I deleted previously).

If anyone has some insight on how I can just delete these things and be
done with it, I'd appreciate it.  I can't run any vg commands without
getting those VGDA consistency errors.  I tried a fix for that which I
found on the archives, but that didn't help at all.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!!
