Re: [linux-lvm] replace bad hard disc



Stefan,

add a new hard drive to your system and create (at least) an LVM partition
(Type 0x8E) on it. Let's call the new one /dev/sde1 and your flaky one
/dev/sdd1 just for the purpose of this example.

Then:

pvcreate /dev/sde1
vgextend Stonki2 /dev/sde1
pvmove /dev/sdd1 /dev/sde1
vgreduce Stonki2 /dev/sdd1

After this went ok you can uninstall the flaky drive from your system
and start to disassemble it in order to create some nice wallclocks ;-)

In case pvmove complains about read errors and stops before moving all
data over, please come back to me for further help.

Regards,
