Re: [linux-lvm] Can no longer mount lvm striped volume



Craig,

you said, "vgscan -f" didn't enable you to "vgchange -ay" the VG in question
but the explicit "vgchange -ay VGName" helped?

Very strange indeed.

Could you send the output of "dd if=$PV of=$(basename $PV).vgda bs=1k count=4k"
(replace the PV variable by your PV device pathes in turn) plus /etc/lvmtab*
contained in a bzip2ed tar archive to me directly <mge sistina com> for
further analisys.

Thanks,
