Re: [linux-lvm] lvm2 pv failure



You could stuff in a new drive and 'dd' the contents of the failed drive to the new drive (if the drive hasn't completely failed) using the "noerror" option.

Now you might be able to (shutdown) pull the bad drive and reboot.

So far, you've risked nothing. I'd see how this goes before trying other things (like editing the lvm labels directly).

How would you recover this? Just curious....

If you striped the two devices, you'll probably be hurting.  If the 1st
hard drive is only partially failed (some sectors fail, others don't),
then you should be able to retrieve most of that data too.
