2 VGs were recognized, the 3rd (the last I've created) isn't displayed.

VGDA in Kernel and lvmtab are NOT consistent; please run vgscan

in my /etc/lvm-conf there is .conf of my third VG  /etc/lvm-conf/daten.conf

vgcfgrestore -n daten -t /dev/sda1 works fine
backup of VolumeGroup "daten" is consistent

an the option -l works also fine.

but a vgcfgrestore -n daten -f /etc/lvm-conf/daten.conf /dev/sda1
displays: can't restore part of active Volume group daten.

But vgscan says: daten isn't existent.
shows only buero, datenbu
