[linux-lvm] Restoring data after losing a drive



I lost one of my drives that was a physical volume in my lvm.  The volume group spanned across all the drives and so did the logical volume.  I know that the data on the good drives is still intact I just don't know how to get the lvm up and running again to be able to read the data.

I tried running 'vgreduce --removemissing fileserver' and that managed to restore my other small logical volume that was located entirely on one of the (still good) physical volumes.  The other large logical volume is still not showing up.

I'm going to attach the last good configuration from /etc/lvm/archive  The drive that died was pv0. 

I really hope that someone can help with this.  It's terrible losing so much data...
