Put "vgchange -ay" into your pre-fsmount startup script (if your distributor
didn't do it for you already).

If your HW-configuration changes (e.g. new disk drives), you need
to run vgscan as well (in case of LVM2 tools, you eant to check, if your
device name filters are still ok in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf).
