Re: [linux-lvm] Unable to mount LVM partition - table too small



Many thanks for the assistance. With the this I should be pointed me in the right direction. As this now looks like a RAID related versus LVM issue I'll continue this on the RAID message list. For those interested, the thread can be found here:

Once again, thanks

I also don't remember ever seeing /dev/md0p1 before, just a /dev/md0
i guessed as much

root adam-desktop:~# mdadm --examine --scan --verbose

    devices=/dev/sde,/dev/sdd,/dev/sdc,/dev/sdb
the above is the wrong md0 using whole disks

this one is the correct one
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid5 num-devices=4
UUID=08558923:881d9efd:464c249d:988d2ec6
    devices=/dev/sde1,/dev/sdd1,/dev/sdc1,/dev/sdb1

root adam-desktop:~# mdadm --examine --verbose /dev/sdd
root adam-desktop:~# mdadm --examine --verbose /dev/sde
you did not dump the partitions, but i guess you couldn't since the
device files disappeared

root adam-desktop:~# cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [linear] [multipath] [raid0] [raid1] [raid6] [raid5]

       2930287488 blocks level 5, 64k chunk, algorithm 2 [4/4] [UUUU]

unused devices:<none>

put
DEVICE /dev/sd?1
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid5 num-devices=4 UUID=08558923:881d9efd:464c249d:988d2ec6

into /etc/mdadm.conf (or /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf, whatever ubuntu places
it) and reboot, you should be able to see your data.

after this ask on linux-raid ml for advice on how to zero the duplicate
superblock.
