sorry for my mail bombing this day, I was really upset about my
troubles. I did actually kill the process by kill -9, and as far as I
can see, there have been no problems.
Now I'd like to ask a question about my main problem:
I can't remove one PE from the VG. I'm running LVM 1.0.8-2 on RHEL 3.
This is what the shell gives me:
# pvmove /dev/sde
pvmove -- moving physical extents in active volume group "express_vg"
pvmove -- WARNING: if you lose power during the move you may need
to restore your LVM metadata from backup!
pvmove -- do you want to continue? [y/n] y
I can't see the Distribution as well:
# pvdisplay -v /dev/sde
--- Physical volume ---
PV Name /dev/sde
VG Name express_vg
PV Size 1.37 TB [2938208256 secs] / NOT usable 64.25
MB [LVM: 215 KB]
PV Status available
Cur LV 1
PE Size (KByte) 65536
Total PE 22415
Free PE 19530
Allocated PE 2885
PV UUID JtrSU1-82Om-HjJC-5rvC-aVwB-Cc5y-WsRbHQ
--- Distribution of physical volume ---
LV Name LE of LV PE for LV
Even with the -d option, there is not more information regarding the
Distribution of physical volume. I it helps I can put the -d and -vv
outputs on a webserver.
What I did not try yet is booting off a gentoo live-CD and using LVM2 to
remove the PE. Is that a good decision?
Thank you for any help. Best regards,
