I know this must be a very common question and has been asked many
times. I'm evaluating LVM and skimmed the LVM-HOWTO. AFAIK there's no
info on what the sysadmin should do in case one of the PVs of a VG
crashes and cannot be remounted. My questions are:
- will the failure of a single PV take down the whole VG it's in?
- does the entire VG have to be rebuilt? or are there methods to simply
replace the faulty PV with a new HDD and restore the lost data from
backup (assume using linear mode)
"If you are reading this line you've too much time to waste."
