[linux-lvm] LVM+Raid1 disappeared



   I'm running Debian testing on a Sun Enterprise250. Sun disks being
what they are, I decided to run RAID5 so that when (note: not *if*)
one of the disks failed, I should be able to restore things relatively
easily.

   I had to turn the box off overnight last week, and now the kernel
doesn't see the RAID disks. pvscan gets me:

curly2:~# pvscan
  Found duplicate PV lVJ7V1wRK3QGepVDxfial74eu5QLFNRm: using /dev/sdc4
  not /dev/sdb4

  Total: 3 [24.01 GB] / in use: 3 [24.01 GB] / in no VG: 0 [0   ]

and mdadm --examine /dev/md0 gets me:
  mdadm: /dev/md0 is too small for md

Kernel is 2.6.11, compiled by me. LVM is version 2.

Any suggestions? More information needed? I'm fairly new to both LVM
and RAID.

Thanks,

 .....Ron
