Hi all.
I write in this list to explain the problem with the meta data and the 

Thank to Heinz J . Mauelshagen i solve the principal problem.

Now i have another problem caused by the same root.

When i start the devlopment  server (debian woody), it remain in the runlevel 
1 e ask me the pass to root access for device-filesystem problem.
It said that it had problem with the  lvm.

To start the sewrver i must to :
1) vgcfgrestore -n volume1 -f /etc/lvmconf/volume1.conf /dev/i2o/hda3
2) vgchange -a y
3) mount -a 
 and only now i can go to runlevel 2 for normal start.

So i understand that 1) the "restoring" metadata is a routine operation at 
boostrap instead of a propely restoring 2) for some reason this does not 
happen more.

So my question is: Why ?
How i can restabilished this at boot time? I can move to solve this other 
Can you help me?
