[linux-lvm] lvm2 and external enclosures



Hi,

(The purpose of this "exercise" is to implement a backup strategy.)

I created PVs then an LV on a pair of drives in a USB dual enclosure, created the FS, backed up my data, umounted the fs, and disconnected/powered down the enclosure.

Upon powering it back up/reconnecting it, I did vgscan, vgchange, mount, but got IO and "unable to read superblock" errors.

Rebooting, even with the external drives disconnected, made things all better (though I did have to do an lvchange -a y).

***** STOP *****

Any thoughts on getting lvm2 to play nice with dynamic devices?

Thanks
