Forget the image, I used dd_rescue to move the data to another drive with little luck in any recovery. When running xfe_repair on the device these are the messages I'm seeing. .......................

Good. Good. This is wrong. /dev/hdb is a partioned disk, not a XFS filesystem. Yes, but this means you can't xfs_repair /dev/hdb or /dev/hdb1 No, /dev/hdb1 is a PV not a filesystem. What I understand

Yes, I think you understood correctly. The LVM spanned 1 full disk (hdb or hdb1) and a partition on another disk (hda4). I might have a "slight" problem re-activating the VG since the original OS has

Uh oh... Could be a problem. Well, if both /dev/hda4 and /dev/hdb1 are available, you should be able to recreate it. As far as I know, in default configurations, metadata is written on all PVs. Try:

The volume group I created was as far as I know a "default" setup... If I'm going to try to re-create the VG, the /dev/hdb1 (dying 200gig Maxtor ) will be dd' d to a 250gig drive, different size. Sin

Well, a dd copy will have make /dev/hdb1 the same size as the old /dev/hdd1, but since the /dev/hdb is larger it will have some space unused. NO NO NO, you must NOT create a new VG. You must re-activ

It's not good then if I can't create new and incorporate the old due to the old OS bieng re-worked, unless I have a back-up which I'm looking for.... [root@myth ~]# pvscan PV /dev/hda5 VG VolGroup01

This is strange. When you reinstalled the OS, did you by change erase /dev/hda4? Also, what do: pvdisplay /dev/hda4 and pvdisplay /dev/hdb1 say? Iustin

Yes, I think what happened was that I dd'd to the wrong drive by accident since I was using Knoppix. /dev/hda wouldn't boot and that was all she wrote! That was the reason for the reinstall. I can ru

Well I don't know - but at least /dev/hda4 should be ok. Well, sorry to say but if you are missing /dev/hda4 (the other part of the VG) then... Hope you have backups! Best regards, Iustin Pop
