Please someone answer this, is there any solution to this problem? To
- Disk failure
- Ran 'vgreduce --remove-missing volgrp0' (probably not such a good idea)
- /dev/volgrp0/ emtpy. 'lvdisplay' doesn't show anything.
So, can I somehow restore my logical volume? The three other physical
disks/partitions are intact.
Thanks in advance,
Thomas NovinI wish I could help you...
The answer to this question is VERY important to me, too. I sent out a question to this mailing list on Saturday that described my nearly identical problem (although I included lots of details). Nobody responded at all. Perhaps I overwhelmed everyone with TMI???If there is no one here who can answer these questions, where can we go for help?Could someone please suggest a forum or reference document that can help Mr. Novin and me? I have spent 3 weeks searching for help on the 'net; and I have read the LVM HowTo several times. This mailing list was my best hope for assistance.Thanks again in advance for any help you might be able to provide, folks!-Tom-
