Instead of doing manual 'edit' you should have used:

vgextend --restoremissing  /dev/your_restored_pv

If you do a manual edit - there is quite large probability the restored
device will cause data inconsistencies for raid/mirrors....

(And complementary command if you would have wanted to drop a missing PV:
vgreduce --removemissing)
