after my posts on the xfs mailing list, I had my xfs filesystems in a usable
state. It has however taken me a week of recompiling stuff (gentoo) to
recover from the filesystem damage :(
Right now i'm back to running one disk, so I dont know if I'll have the same
problems when I next try to expand my raid onto the second disk, but I'll let
you know when I do. I'll probably sync the disks manually before letting evms
near it, as a safety measure next time.
However, If you're in a situation to set up evms with raid1 accross both disks
from the start, then do that. It's what I did on my debian server and that's
worked wonderfully (just read the install guide and make sure you have the
raid1 patch if neccecary!) :D
