I've seen this kind of behavior when you get multiple VG's (and LV's in my
case) with the same name many times over.
The issue that I witnessed was due to the host vgscan picking up the lvm
information on the Virtual Machine disks and adding them to the host's
In this case, the host was picking up VG_VM (and LV_VM) three times and
adding it to the running config. I was seeing the same type of warnings
you 'read failed after ....' for each duplicate that was found.
The method I used to fix this was to adjust the "filter = " line in
/etc/lvm/lvm.conf (on a ubuntu 12.04 LTS system) under the devices section
to explicitly prevent any of the virtual machine LV's from being added to
