I had a vg "debian" with the pvs /dev/hda2 /dev/hda3 /dev/hda4
I wanted to remove /dev/hda4, so i did: pvmove -v /dev/hda4
Everything went well, so I removed /dev/hda4, but _without_ the use of:
vgreduce debian /dev/hda4 :-(
I also did: pvcreate /dev/hda4 , so /dev/hda4 seems to be an empty pv, and
it does not know that it belongs
to the vg "debian".
And now, I get:
root at ttyp0[root]# vgscan
vgscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
vgscan -- ERROR "vg_read_with_pv_and_lv(): current PV" can't get data of
volume group "debian" from physical volume(s)
vgscan -- "/etc/lvmtab" and "/etc/lvmtab.d" successfully created
vgscan -- WARNING: This program does not do a VGDA backup of your volume

pvscan -- total: 3 [57.24 GB] / in use: 2 [33.38 GB] / in no VG: 1 [23.85
How can I recover my vg? There are no backups :-(
How can I tell the vg "debian" to do not use: the empty pv /dev/hda4?
Or, how can I tell /dev/hda4 that it belongs to the vg "debian"?
There is no lvmconf too :-(
What additional information do you need to be able to help me?
