[linux-lvm] LVM - Hitachi USP tier 2 to tier 1 migration then "couldn't find device with uuid"



Title: LVM - Hitachi USP tier 2 to tier 1 migration then "couldn't find device with uuid"
I am looking for feedback regarding an issue with LVM, Hitachi USP storage virtualization and SAN migration from tier 2 to tier 1.

We had a customer complaining about disk IO latency so the SAN team used some Hitachi USP magic to migrate the servers existing SAN disks from tier 2 to tier 1. Three nights later I rebooted the server during a maintenance window and the server hung with a console message
“Couldn’t find all physical volumes for volume group vg2
Volume group “vg2” not found”

I commented out the necessary lines in fstab so I could get the server back on the network and ssh into it.

Once in it appeared as if 4 disks were missing.

Metadata does not appear to be corrupt. It just isn’t there.

Fdisk –l shows 4 disks as not having any partition information.
“ doesn't contain a valid partition table “

Did something happen during the tier 2 to tier 1 migration several nights earlier, and I caused it to surface with the reboot? Or do you think something else caused this.

Has anyone experienced storage migration using an Hitachi USP with LVM? Are there any known gotcha’s?

Thanks
Zach
