Well, that is the reason for my wish to extend that VG. So that I can
copy data from my failing disk:

Feb 12 16:12:55 tui smartd[5958]: Device: /dev/hde, 4 Currently unreadable (pending) sectors
Feb 12 16:12:55 tui smartd[5958]: Device: /dev/hde, 1 Offline uncorrectable sectors

/dev/hda and /dev/hdg only report changes in attributes 8 and 209
(Seek_Time_Performance and Offline_Seek_Performnce). I don't thik that
is a problem.

I'm still quite puzzled as to why I can't crate physical volumes on
/dev/hdg9 and /dev/hdg10, when /dev/hdg7 and /dev/hdg8 work fine...
It can't possibly be down to the filters, as the program suggested?

Regards,

Gunther
