In this instance however, vgscan doesn't appear to fix the issue.  After doing the vgdisplay -v vgGWPOCSHARED to see all the volumes, I then perform a vgscan and get the same Archiving volume group "vgGWPOCSHARED" metadata error in the verbose output.  A vgdisplay -v without the VG name once again shows the volumes as absent.
