[linux-lvm] pvmove errors

Hi List,

I need to move all the data off of my external scsi array and remove it
from my volume group.
The external array is /dev/cciss/c1d0p0, so I issued a pvmove with the
following results:

>/sbin/sh-2.05b# pvmove --version
>pvmove: Logical Volume Manager 1.0.8-2

I've tried a --force but that didn't help.

Any ideas? Need to get this drive out of the VG asap.
