actually, I did figure out what happened. The system was in a
state so before I shut it down to fix it I decided to take out one of
drives I wasn't using. So I did a vgreduce to remove the unused drive
then did a vgchange/vgexport to export those disks. What I've found is
when I did the reduce right before the export it never updated the
disks about the removed one. So I fixed it by putting everything back
it was before then doing a vgcfgrestore to all the drives. reexported
and once it was on the new setup I did the reduce. That seemed to work
Thanks for the help tho.
