[linux-lvm] vgscan / vgimport problems



I am an LVM newbie but did manage to get it up and running on a non-system
disk.
I rebuild my system with the same version of Linux (Redhat 7.2), the same
kernel (2.4.9-7, which I recompiled for LVM), and the same version of LVM
(0.9.1_beta7).  By the way...I am using an old release of LVM due to my
inability to patch this kernel with 1.0.1-rc4.  The problem is that I am
unable to import my old vg.  This disk has remained untouched since my
previous install.

pvscan output:
pvscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdd"  is associated to an unknown VG (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- total: 1 [31.08 MB] / in use: 1 [31.08 MB] / in no VG: 0 [0]

vgscan output:
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- found inactive volume group "sundogvg"
vgscan -- only found 0 of 5120 LEs for LV /dev/sundogvg/datalv (0)
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_read_with_pv_and_lv(): allocated LE of LV" can't get
data of volume group "sundogvg" from physical volume(s)
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_read_with_pv_and_lv(): allocated LE of LV" creating
"/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d"

vgimport output:
vgimport -- ERROR: physical volume "/dev/hdd" doesn't belong to an exported
volume group

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
