Re: [linux-lvm] error trying to vgcfgrestore



ah, I think the -l wasn't needed, but still I have no luck:

blade01:backup # vgcfgrestore big_cheese
  Couldn't find device with uuid '6uBYm4-WiAQ-eZib-t6hK-IH2c-fmAQ-0a9K9i'.
  Couldn't find all physical volumes for volume group big_cheese.
  Restore failed.

is it safe to recreate the physical volumes?  does anything get wiped, or
does the meta just get reconstituted?
