I am running a Mandrake 7.1 distribution with a 2.4.0-test10 kernel. Yesterday,
I needed to reboot my workstation and since then it didn't come back.
After lots of problem, I managed to export my volume group, but I can't reimport
it as it gives me the following message:
"vgimport -- ERROR pv_read_all_pv_of_vg(): PV number reading data of volume
group vg00".
I checked the number of pvs in my volume group using "vgcfgrestore -l -n vg00"
and it says 4, and I am sure that the ones I give in the command line are the
right ones. Has anybody an idea on how to force it to import my volume group?
