Re: [linux-lvm] LVM groups not visible



I can't imagine putting LVM on a USB drive... Are you sure LVM is even involved here?

You can type 'mount' or 'df' at the command prompt. That will tell you how the usbdisk is mounted. If it is mounted from /dev/sda1 - then there is no LVM in the mix.

Hi,
I'm rather new to LVM and I have a - I think - simple question.
I have a removable disk (USB) with several volumegroups on it created
with one system (linux 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5). I wanted to use it to backup
from another system (linux 2.6.14-386: ubuntu) the W2000 partition.
WHen I connect the disk it is seen as usbdisk on /dev/sda1 and the
content is displayed.
However, lvdisplay says: " no volume groups found"
lvscan says: " no volume groups found"
pvscan says: " no matching physical volumes found"
But the content is visible in nautilus and I can write and read.
Hope somebody can clarify and help me.
Joep
