Re: [linux-lvm] How to fix missmatch between VG-size and LV-size?

resize2fs would be run AFTER lvextend, so if resize2fs was running, 
the LV would need to be the new, larger size.  Yet, you said 
"the system still thinks the LV is the old size".  Did you run
vgcfgrestore already, restoring to the point between where you 
ran vgextend and lvextend?  Perhaps you forgot to run lvextend, 
but then one would expect resize2fs to tell you it was already 
full sized.  Double check what you did, because this information
is not consistent.

Indeed you could "undo" the vgextend and lvextend via vgcfgrestore, 
or via lvreduce + vgreduce, but first you probably need to undo 
resize2fs.  Use fsck to get the filesystem consistent, if possible.
Then resize it back to the old smaller size.  At this point you 
can move forward by using lvextend, then resize2fs. You could also 
move backward from that point with lvreduce and vgreduce.
