[linux-lvm] Over-Allocated PE - LVM1



Hi folks,

I'm hoping someone can help me help myself with this problem.

Description:

Running out of space on my volume group ("discpool"), I bought and installed a new drive.

Then came this error, which I can't find any info on, is as follows:

vgscan -- ERROR "pv_check_consistency(): allocated PE" volume group "discpool" is inconsistent

The only thing I can find out of the ordinary is this:

> pvdata /dev/hde
--- Physical volume ---
PV Name /dev/hde
VG Name discpool
PV Size 111.79 GB [234441648 secs] / NOT usable 32.19 MB [LVM: 137 KB]
PV# 1
PV Status NOT available
Allocatable yes
Cur LV 5
PE Size (KByte) 32768
Total PE 3576
Free PE 4294967188
Allocated PE 3684


It's somehow over-allocated the PE on the PV. The other two drives of the 3 in the VG report correctly.

To make things odder, "pvdata -E /dev/hde" reports:

--- List of physical extents ---
PE: 00000  LV: 002  LE: 00028
PE: 00001  LV: 002  LE: 00029

PE: 03573  LV: ---  LE: -----
PE: 03574  LV: ---  LE: -----
PE: 03575  LV: ---  LE: -----

The other drives are fine, and don't display this pattern. Really, this one drive seems like the only issue preventing me from getting the LVM back up and running.

How can this be corrected?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
