[linux-lvm] vg_read_with_pv_and_lv error



I've come across a problem with my lvm drive(s).  When I try to mount it, I get
/dev/diskvg/share does not exist.  Running pvscan I get,

pvscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdg1"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdg2"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdg3"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdh1"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdh2"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdh3"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdh4"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hde1"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hde2"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hde3"  is associated to unknown VG "diskvg" (run
vgscan)
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdf1" is in no VG  [19.53 GB]
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/hdf2" is in no VG  [18.82 GB]
pvscan -- total: 12 [267.09 GB] / in use: 10 [228.74 GB] / in no VG: 2 [38.35
GB]

which is correct (other than having an unknown vg), and when I run vgscan I
get, 

vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- only found 33727 of 33556 LEs for LV /dev/diskvg/share (0)
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_read_with_pv_and_lv(): allocated LE of LV" can't get data
of volume group "diskvg" from physical volume(s)
vgscan -- "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d" successfully created
vgscan -- WARNING: This program does not do a VGDA backup of your volume group

vgcfgrestore -n diskvg -b 1 /dev/hdg1

but running pvdata /dev/hdg1 I still get

Is there any hope of restoring the data?
