[linux-lvm] Can no longer mount lvm striped volume

I just had a power outage and now I cannot
remount my LVM volumes. I have to volume
groups each with one logical volume. Each
vg is striped across two luns.
I started getting the errors:
vgscan -- ERROR: logical volume "/dev/sdd_vol2/lv1" reuses
an existing device number; please vgexport/vgimport that VG
I was using lvm-1.0.2 at the time so I could
not run vgscan -f. So I upgraded my 2.4.14 kernel
to lvm-1.1-rc2 and gave it a try.
Now I vgscan will not complain about the logical
volumes, but I still cannot mount the ext3 filesystems
that are installed on the volumes.
I am now getting the error message:
[root at x06 /root]# mount -t ext3 /dev/sdd_vol2/ /export/sdd_vol2
mount: /dev/sdd_vol2/ is not a block device
IO nodes have gone down in the past due to
power interruptions, but I have never had
this catastrophic of a problem. I have 16 volume
groups, and 3 or 4 appear to be affected.
