Do not forget to intialize PV with 'pvcreate' before restoring LVM structures

Re: very problem

Hi,

- most often this means that pvcreate has not been executed on this disk before use
- otherwise you /etc/lvmtab is corrupt
- or an hardware issue

(a search in this forum will give you several answers).

good luck,
Thierry.
