That's a pity then, I thought I could "trust" pvs to show what's really
used, without going to the devices - which I did, and iostat disagreed
with LVM. OTOH, this split mirror was confusing LVM, and me as well.
Anyway, I just went for it now: removed the filter= directives,
ran pvcreate on sdb, now we have different UUID and all LVs survived - all
but two, but these two were created after the split and must've been
written to sdb. I think this was done before I installed the filter= in
lvm.conf, because all the other LVs contain current data.
Lessons learned: deal with double UUIDs right after the mirror split, not
a weeks later (which I did, because the backup took that long, but that's
Thanks for all the comments on this,
