[linux-lvm] vgchange -an question with disconnected disks



I have a question regarding the behavior of vgchange -a n on lvm2 when there are disk failures. Specifically the following:

1. vgchange -a y vg00
2. disconnect the disks
3. vgchange -a n vg00

Now this fails with many messages, such as:
[root harris ~]# vgchange -a n vg00

  Unable to find volume group "vg00"
[root harris ~]#

This the vg is not deactivated. Now this is different behavior that with lvm1 which would just proceed as normal. My question is that is there a way to force the deactivation to occur in this case?

Thanks!
