SV: [linux-lvm] Need to remove broken hdd, and need to move the stuff i can from the broken disk



Seems I don?t have that backup dir, don?t even have a /etc/lvm dir...
I have tried to shrink the fs but the drive seems to hang the system
when I reach the bad blocks. Since I use ext3 I cant "cut" the fs off
like I would be able to do with like reiserFS... anyone have any ideas
of what to do ?
I have been trying to move stuff of the lvm too to free som space, but
the drive hangs everytime there is a dir that?s located on the crashed
disk...

It would be great with some handeling of crashed drives... some fault
tolerance...

I'm sure Alasdair could tell you a way to find out using the lvs
command.  I tend to just look at /etc/lvm/backup/<vg name>.  Send this
file to me (off list) if you have trouble interpreting it.  You'll
probably want to shrink the fs/volume that is on the bad pv before
doing the move.
