Re: [linux-lvm] duplicate volume group names



Michal,

detach the 2nd HDD, vgrename "vg0" to something, reattach the 2nd HDD,
run "vgscan;vgchange -ay" and you should be able to access both.
Keep necessary /etc/fstab changes in mind doing so.

Regular procedure for such VG moves from one computer to another is
"vgchange -an VG ; vgexport VG" on the 1st one, move PVs to the 2nd computer
and run "vgimport VG PVPath [PVPath...]" there.
