It is quite intersting how many people don't take backups even though
almost everybody claims to know that backups are crucial and some of them
know that they are still, even though they might have RAID in place.

Well I guess it, but you didn't mention if you had success to recover.

Was it quorum (we are implementing it with LVM2 BTW) which helped and have
you been lucky that at least a part of your LVs where sitting on other than the
gone disk? Otherwise you probably had your VG back but no usable data.

Probably a good choice to leave if they don't understand such basics
and you couldn't convince them.
