I have create a volume group with 4 250GByte harddisks with an ext3 file
now the third harddisk failed and the volume group is "dead", obviously.
lvscan tells me:
Couldn't find device with uuid 'A57CS6-SFlw-1ROR-uIvO-cX2o-OE2g-N3SVZN'.
Couldn't find all physical volumes for volume group media_volgrp.
in my understanding many of the files are still intact (those on the first
two disks), and I would like to rescue these files.
i found no hints about such a crash recovery.
my approach would be to "fake" the third disk, as see what the filesystem
makes out of it.
any help is welcome.
