[linux-lvm] Volume and snapshot unusable after a kernel panic



Hello all,
Recently my mailserver running Ubuntu 6.0.6 went on kernel panic and I had to 
cold reset it. After the system booted I discovered that I can't use one of 
my lvm volumes and the associated snapshot. All metadata regarding the lvm 
groups, physical and logical volumes were still available and a I was able to 
start using the problematic volume with evms but still  would like to know 
what the problem with the lvm is and how it could  be fixed.   After a little 
bit of digging I found that the volume devise  was  listed in the /dev/mapper 
dir but the sym link to it in the/dev/Vg00 was missing. Also using 'dmsetup 
info' a saw that the volume state was active but there was no mapping table 
for it and the open count was 0 .. here is the exact output from  dmsetup:

Name:              Vg00-kolab
State:             ACTIVE
Tables present:    None
Open count:        0
Event number:      0
Major, minor:      253, 2
Number of targets: 0
UUID: LVM-1RpKM9Gv2KWwLcMd2AqSEdK6QaCJf51TZ7f1fA8D3Pq9EgkBPKI3BcHtEOCQwris


Here is also the output from vgdisplay -vv:
