Thanks for your reply. Couple of clarification questions:
Lets say the disk that holds the the lvm metadata (and system files) dies
and I have to rebuild from scratch:

1) I restore the system disk
2) restore the /etc/lvm* files from backup ?
3) Am I done? 
Lets say I have another a couple of other LVs that don't include PVs from
the crashed disk. Lets say the data on 
the filesystem have changed. since the last backup of the /etc/lvm* data.
Will those filesystems be OK after the
restore of the /etc/lvm* data?

Besten Dank
