Isn't it recognized by the target machine even if it was not properly
exported? I once had similar problems when trying to migrate a VG to
an other system which already had a VG. In this case I had to "import"
the new VG properly, to arrange it with the already running VG.
If you are using LVM2, all necessary informations to get it running
again are saved on each PV, regardless of beeing exported or not.
