I was searching through the LVM mailing list archives and someone said:

I had LVM spanning 4 HDDs and one will no longer spin up. That was also the
disk housing the / filesystem. The / filesystem was not LVM but ext3 but
there was an LVM partition on there. I have backups, thank god but they a
couple of days old.
I have to reinstall the Operating system (redhat 7.3) from scratch, if I
install as I did before, will I be able to recover the data on the
remaining 3 disks? A friend said it should be as easy as a couple of
commands but I am still such a newbie to LVM and this is the first time,
since installing it I have had to think about it again.
Any tips anyone can offer would be appreciated or directions to the faq
mentioned above. I searched the sistina site but to no avail.
