Re: [linux-lvm] VGDA error



Paul,

coud you send me the files created with

for d in /dev/sd[b-e]1
do
   dd if=$d of=$(basename $d).vgda bs=1k count=1k
done

in private email to mge sistina com for further investigation, please?

In the meantime stay using LVM 1.0.3 and if you really don't have any LVs
in that VG, recreate it from scratch :)

With LVM 1.0.3 run:

vgchange -an NUsers
pvcreate -yff /dev/sd[b-e]1
rm -r /dev/NUsers
vgcreate NUsers /dev/sd[b-e]1

Regards,
Heinz    -- The LVM Guy --
