You can just specify 'pvmove -vv /dev/sdb2' to allow it to allocate on
your new disk as well or you can do
'pvmove -vv /dev/sdb2 /dev/sda2 /dev/<yourNewPVname>' to allow it to
allocate on the new PV as well.  What distro and what version of LVM and
device package are you using.  Someone may help if you post it to
dm-devel mailing list.

Thanks, Malahal.
