Error with LVM cannot find volume group

By lw ·
Using LVM 1.0.3 under Redhat kernel 2.4.18-5 i set up a 2 disk volume group which was working fine until I rebooted. Now vgscan says it cannot read the volume group data from the disk. It appears to have lost the VG info on disk1 and vgcfgrestore doesn't restore it. Disk2 has the volume group info so how can I fix this without losing the data on disk1?

I have tried pvcreate -ff /dev/hde followed by vgcfgrestore -n data_disks /dev/hde which said it had worked, but had not.

I am using a maxtor 160GB ATA133 disk on a promise ata133 TX2 controller for which there are no specific drivers , but the system seemed to work fine until the reboot.

I wont post details of pvdata etc until asked.

Thanks if you can help

You may want to post this question to the LVM mailing list. You can get to the lvm page through www.sistina.com/products_lvm.htm

Good Luck

Thanks Jeff, but I have already tried the mailing list people, they couldn't help either.

I have now given up on LVM because it obviously isn't reliable in its current state on my system.
