[linux-lvm] sudden failure of whole lvm system



Hello all!
 
I have a raid setup in stripping over some sata hdds(/dev/sda) and I setup lvm ontop of it.
now after one reboot I couldn't mount the lvm no more.
 
the /dev/mapper/ contains only the control device
dmesg |grep "device mapper":
    device-mapper: 4.4.0-ioctl (2005-01-12) initialised: dm-devel redhat com
pvs --verbose:
    Scanning for physical volume names
pvscan --verbose
    Wiping cache of LVM-capable devices
    Wiping internal cache
    Walking through all physical volumes
  No matching physical volumes found

pvdisplay: nothing
 
going to /etc/lvm/archive I see that I have some files with some configs and the latest one appears to be the good one:

}

I tried the PV metadata recovery command found at

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/recovermetadata.html

root sakunew:/etc/lvm/archive# pvcreate --uuid "cNr18P-wskQ-bvR3-FTON-1HVE-SotJ-bpFDhP" --restorefile /etc/lvm/archive/archive_00003.vg -d /dev/sda
  Couldn't find device with uuid 'cNr18P-wskQ-bvR3-FTON-1HVE-SotJ-bpFDhP'.
  Device /dev/sda not found.
 
I tried also vgcfgrestore :
root sakunew:/etc/lvm/archive# vgcfgrestore -d -v archive
  Couldn't find device with uuid 'cNr18P-wskQ-bvR3-FTON-1HVE-SotJ-bpFDhP'.
  Couldn't find all physical volumes for volume group archive.
  Restore failed.
 
when running cat /dev/sda | hexdump -C | less
I get :

indicating that both the archive UUID and the pv0 UUID changed and that pv0 now is on /dev/sda1(!) and that the JFS partition is there and possibly could be recovered ...
 
I made a backup of the archive_00003.vg config and modified it with the data that I found in the hexdump above and now file looks like:

                        pe_start = 384
                        pe_count = 1144408      # 4.36557 Terabytes
                }
        }

        logical_volumes {

                lvol0 {

                        segment_count = 1

                        segment1 {
                                start_extent = 0

                                stripes = [
                                        "pv0", 0
                                ]
                        }
                }
        }
}

 

now why my original config showed that pv0 was on /dev/sda and in metadata taken with hexdump it was in /dev/sda1 ?

if I run :

pvcreate --uuid "H20yPs-3Z0L-49NX-YFqd-Kvui-VmZH-WLzn2W" --restorefile /etc/lvm/archive/archive_00003.vg -d /dev/sda1
  Couldn't find device with uuid 'H20yPs-3Z0L-49NX-YFqd-Kvui-VmZH-WLzn2W'.
  Physical volume "/dev/sda1" successfully created

and

root sakunew:/etc/lvm/archive# pvscan
  PV /dev/sda1         lvm2 [2.00 TB]
  Total: 1 [2.00 TB] / in use: 0 [0   ] / in no VG: 1 [2.00 TB]

it shows only 2T instead of 4T which is in the config file

and

root sakunew:/etc/lvm/archive# pvdisplay

  PV Name               /dev/sda1
  VG Name

  PV UUID               H20yPs-3Z0L-49NX-YFqd-Kvui-VmZH-WLzn2W

 

I'm running debian 3.1 with kernel 2.6.12 with

ARECA RAID: 64BITS PCI BUS DMA ADDRESSING SUPPORTED
scsi0 : ARECA ARC1130 PCI-X 12 PORTS SATA RAID CONTROLLER (RAID6-ENGINE Inside)
        Driver Version 1.20.00.07
  Vendor: Areca     Model: ARC-1130-VOL#00   Rev: R001
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 03
arcmsr device major number 253
SCSI device sda: 9374994432 512-byte hdwr sectors (4799997 MB)
SCSI device sda: drive cache: write back

 

what can I do to get lvm to detect my raid correctly and where is the problem so I can fix it and get my data ?

I hope I pasted all information that was needed. Now don't go ignoring me with this please ;p

thanks, cip
