[linux-lvm] recovering with missing PV -s

Dear lvm list,

We have a DS4700 disk storage system which exports 9 LUNs to a given
machine each one is 1.5TB (because it has 2TB limit on each).
One VG is created from this 9 PV without striping and one LV is built
on it. The filesystem is reiserfs3.

Two days ago one eclosure has failed. 3 PVs out of 9 are missing. The
space usage was about 10%.
Is there a way to recover from this failure with LVM?

Thanks in advance.

headaches, the solution is not to put padding on the hammer.
