Re: [linux-lvm] problem

-- Daniel Wittenberg <daniel-wittenberg uiowa edu>

I had 2 drives in my machine, with a VG across both of them.  The only
thing on the second drive was part of /tmp, so when the second drive
died I didn't really lose anything.  But I have problems now because I
can't activate the VG because part of it is missing, but I can't remove
tmp, so it's a catch-22.  Is there anyway to remove an LV without
activating the VG?  Or another way I can tell it to ignore missing LV's?

vgexport + vgimport should do it for you if none of the other LV's stretched onto the dead drive.

If you don't want to spread data across drives that are
not maintained with some sort of RAID then you are
probably better off putting the drives in separate VG's
so that data doesn't accidentally spill across the disks.
