Yesterday I krashed my lvm. This is the first time I'm having real
problems with it.
This is what happened.
I was going to add a new lv and used the lvcreate-command as usual.
This time I forgot the -n switch and when I realized that I hit ctrl-c..
Now my vg is gone. I can't get it back whatever I try. Any help would
be VERY appreciated.
A vgscan just sais "no volume groups found" or something like that.
doing a pvdisplay on the pv's in my vg gives me that they should be in
"diskvg" (which is correct). I've tried doing vgcfgrestore from the
backups in /etc/lvmconf but that doesn't help. vgscan still doesn't
I looked at the HOWTO and found a program named uuid_fixer that looked
like it could solve the problem but it died with an "illegal
instruction" regardless of if I used the precompiled version or compiled
This is on a mandrake 8.1-box with lvm, xfs, reiserfs and devfs so there
are alot of things to think about.
When doing stuff I did the following first:
reboot into single user, remount / rw, mount /proc, restore some
standar-stuff into /dev, and start devfsd
After that I tried vgcfgrestore, vgscan, uuid_fixer and just about
everything I could think or.
Please please please help me. Can anyone solve this. There are over 60
GB of stuff on this computer and it needs to work TODAY :(
