/dev/vg1/dir-1: read failed after 0 of 4096 at ...
 
Hi,

I really messed up my LVM settings. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 server and
my updates were up-to-date. Here is the whole story:

1. I have got four (4) identical 320 GB hard disks: "/dev/sda",
"/dev/sdb", "/dev/sdc" and "/dev/sdd" and one (1) 1 TB "/dev/sde".
2. Each 320 GB disk is paritioned to 1 GB + 319 GB ("/dev/sdX1" and
"/dev/sdX2") and 1 TB disk has only one 1 TB parition.
3. There is RAID-1 (/dev/md0) on the "/dev/sdX1" paritions and RAID-5
(/dev/md1) on the "/dev/sdX2" partions.
4. LVM volume group "vg1" was set at first only on /dev/md1.
5. On vg1 there was only logical volumes: "root", "dir-1" and "dir-2".
6. Later I attached hard disk /dev/sde and attached it to volume group "vg1"
7. I created logical volume drbd with command something like "lvcreate
-L 800G -n drbd vg1 /dev/sde1"
8. I was setting DRBD device on logical volume "drbd". I made some
changes to "filter" parameter in "/etc/lvm/lvm.conf".
9. I noticed that there "PV unknown device" and I accidentally removed
it with command (I am not 100% sure of this) "vgreduce --removemissing
vg1". If I remember correctly used switch "-f" too. :-(
10. Then I found out that system was acting strangely. If I remember
correct it prompted something "Couldn't find device with uuid...". Then
I realized how stupid I had been!
11. Then I followed instructions on
"http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX116095":
11.1. I booted with installation disk to installation environment
11.2. I run: "vgdisplay --partial --verbose"
11.3.Then I run "pvcreate --restorefile /etc/lvm/backup/vg1 --uuid
UUID /dev/sde1 -ff"
11.4. Then again: "vgdisplay --partial --verbose"
11.5. At last: "vgcfgrestore --file /etc/lvm/backup/vg1 vg1"
12. I removed volume group "drbd".
Notice: device /dev/sde was attached all the time.
13. After this running commands:

dir-1 vg1 vwi-a- 279.39g
dir-2 vg1 vwi-a- 470.00g

Is there any change to recover LVM from this point? I don't care if I
loose the newest data but I really want to salvage at least the older data.

Actually this is much like what happened to me:
http://bisqwit.iki.fi/story/howto/undopvremove/

Correction to item 9. where I claimed that I used command "vgreduce". I
am pretty sure I used "pvremove" instead as told in the article "How to
undo pvremove".
