I have a situation here where I have to Volume groups
I just created 2 more Logical Volumes(LV) on VolumeMailData to make a total
I then rebooted and got this error
vgscan - found an inactive volume group "VolumeMailData"
vgscan - found an inactive volume group "vg0"
vgscan - volume group "vg0" reuses an existing logical volume number; please
vgexport/vgimport that VG or use option -f
kernel panic: no init found; try passing init=
VolumeMailData gets activated. But my root (/) is on vg0 which doesnt get
activated and I am dead in the water.
I can detach my JBOD/RAID Array which makes up VolumeMailData so I can boot.
This way it doesnt find the inactive volume group VolumeMailData and vgo is
able to come up normaly
How can I fix this problem, as it is I kinda need both volume groups
functioning simantaniously :)
