Re: [linux-lvm] mapping blocks to PVs?

Ok, assuming the block/sector stuff is correct:

   --- Physical extents ---
   PE    LV                        LE      Disk sector
   00000 /dev/site/lvol1           00000   33144
   00001 /dev/site/lvol1           00001   65912

badblocks(2) is not picking up those blocks as being bad; this means I
need to manually remove the first LE from this LV.  I assume I can
do something similar to `pvmove -n /dev/site/lvol1:0 /dev/hdf1 /dev/hdb1`
(hdf1 is the one causing problems, but I can't simply remove the PV from the
VG w/out deleting lots of stuff).  However, how do I lvreduce from the
beginning of the LV?  Is that possible?
