[linux-lvm] No device found for PV but is actually fine



Hi all,

I have a weird issue:

# pvs
 No device found for PV JszGc1-S16s-bsFQ-weAl-aj8W-d6y4-BeVqcN.
 PV         VG    Fmt  Attr PSize   PFree

The VG on the "missing" PV is called "system", but:

# vgdisplay /dev/system
  No device found for PV JszGc1-S16s-bsFQ-weAl-aj8W-d6y4-BeVqcN.

  VG UUID               fQoJ8p-BI3D-BcEH-BiQX-JJqf-p6TT-6KIoRt

Actually all LVs on the "system" VG are present and accounted for. The
LVs contain the root file system, and some virtual machine drives, all
of which are running *fine* (and the system in fact boots up from the
"missing" PV :). But I can't resize:

# lvextend -L +16G /dev/system/vm-monitor
  No device found for PV JszGc1-S16s-bsFQ-weAl-aj8W-d6y4-BeVqcN.
  Cannot change VG system while PVs are missing.
  Consider vgreduce --removemissing.

The "system" VG is situated on a md raid1. I think it all happened after
I replaced all the drives of that md with mdadm --replace with bigger
disks. But I can't be sure, because the system in fact works and except
the inability to resize there are no problems.

I have googled around a bit, but to no avail. Can someone help me
diagnose and repair this?
