I don't know how that second metadata area got there :)  I don't think I'm using it or will have any use for it.
So there is no way of erasing it? If I do "backup VG, redo pvcreate with uuid&  restorefile, restore VG"
as Alasdair said as quoted by malahal at us.ibm.com, I will erase all data, right? The solution seems to be
roughly equivalent to backing up all data and then repartition before copying back?
