root at vmhost:~# lvm version
  LVM version:     2.02.98(2) (2012-10-15)
  Library version: 1.02.77 (2012-10-15)
  Driver version:  4.27.0

    use_lvmetad = 0

No such daemon is running.

The exact command I used to use in the BusyBox prompt is
lvm vgchange -ay vmhost-vg

Or, if I remember correctly, it activates simply by
lvm vgchange -ay
as well.

Then I exit the BusyBox prompt, and the boot process continues correctly.

My root FS is in vmhost-vg, and I have no idea why it doesn't come up
