[linux-lvm] Inconsistent VG

Hello everyone,

We're facing a curious inconsistency problem. From our checks, we've
concluded that vgdw2 metadata doesn't include lvol4, however, it exists,
it's created and it's mountable, altho, an lvdisplay on it fails and a
vgdisplay doesn't show it either.

Does someone have any guesses?
Aside from that, we've checked from the lvm/archive/vgdw2_* files. The
recent-most, doesn't include lvol4. We've managed to pull the "lvol4 { }"
part from an older file and confirmed all pv's in the segment definitions
existed in the destination, but it didn't help either.
