as first thing, i say hallo to you.
now i tell you my problem:
on a controler raid (i2o devices) i have a debian distro.
Recently i have enlarged the logical volumes on this controler.
All seemed ok, i was able to remount the file systems and to copy and install
programs and data on resized volumes.
So, i was out of office and the development server was tuned off by person who
wasn't me (so i don't know what is the matter, if happened any thing ).
later, when in was in office i have turn on the server and the vgscan failed,
it said " ..omissis... only found 499 of 500 LE for LV
I don't undestand what was happened.
It is possible that a bad tuned off make a problem as this?
Any body know the answer?
To solve the trouble i thinked to do in this way:
to reduce the LV lgv1 of some LE , in this way the info about the number of LE
will rewrite and (i hope) the problem vanish.The idea seems good, isn't?
But i can't do this because the volume group is inactive.
Anybody know a method to active a volume group also if vgscan fail?
Please, i MUST to recove the data on the lv, we don't have a backup policy
