Did you add disk from a machine with a volume group already called system?

You should have done a vgexport first if you did, if you don;t you get two
possible problems a name clash, Active groups have a number starting with
the first oen you created and that can clash too... Don't look like that
in your case, in both cases you can avoid it with vgexport/vgimport

You could ty renaming your volume group, that should allow the shadow
"system" group to show, 

vgrename /dev/system /dev/system2

then do a vgmerge of system and system2 into system
