Re: [linux-lvm] How to remove crashed inaccessible harddrive from LVM2.

LVM2 allows you to activate partial volume groups and to remove missing

vgchange and vgreduce. See the manual pages for full details.

It sounds like your failed drive has not 'gone away' but is throwing I/O
errors for some sectors and maybe causing system hangs. You might be
better off disconnecting it and booting the system into a rescue
environment to perform the recovery of the volume group since it does
not contain important data you want to recover.

Kind regards,

Do u mean rescue env like booting with the rescue cd?

I tried to do like u said but when i disconnect the drive, some other
device take /dev/sdc from the failed drive but LVM complains that UID
is missing and when i check /etc/backup/VG i can see the missing UID
and that is the drive that have failed /dev/sdc

Now i'm afraird to remove the /dev/sdc from the volume group beacuse
some other drive took over /dev/sdc.

Can u please provide some useful commands that i can begin with?

Kind regards
