[linux-lvm] LVM2 problem, volume group seems to dissapear



Dear Group,

I don't have any idea what happened. Yesterdany after routine power on which
is scheduled for my machine twice a day (power saving), LVM2 volumes were
not detected by system. For security system all data of critical importance
are stored on separate software raid (mdm), managed by LVM2 driver. I wonder
how to recover the data. 

What system said during boot up procedure:

Fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open
/dev/mapper/pv-zasoby1
/dev/mapper/pv-zasoby1:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem
(and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and
you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
E2fsck -b 8193 <device>
(...)
The same info was displayed about the other pv created volumes.
(...)
Fsck died with exit status 8 [fail]

* File system check failed
A log is being saved in /var/log/fsck/checkfs if that location is writable.
Please repair the file system manually.

Please repair the file system manually

* A maintenance shell will now be started.
CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and resume system boot. Give root
password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue)

I tried to do vgcfgrestore as I have backup and archive subfolders in
/etc/lvm:

maciej gucek2:~$ sudo vgcfgrestore -f /etc/lvm/archive/pv_00000.vg -n pv0
/dev/md0 -t

I've no idea what to do next. Please give detailed clues, if possible.
