Description Nick (Gunnar) Bluth 2003-11-11 01:53:23 EST
Description of problem: 
Decided to switch back from Gentoo to Fedora yesterday, so I moved 
all needed data (homedirs, working dirs, VMware VMs, ...) on an 
existing VG (2 whole HDDs, 1 partition, ~86 GB in linear mode). 
Disk Druid saw the partition (sdd1), but I didn't touch it at all. 
You can imagine how shocked I've been when lvscan listed it in the 
new "Rootvg" I created during installation! 
Even reforced the three slices into a new VG (lvcreate -Z, mke2fs 
-S) again, but fsck is running since ~7 hours now... 
Currently, I'm rescanning ~120 GB of DDS backup tapes (well, Arkeia 
has also been on that VG...), hoping I'll get at least parts of the 
stuff back.... =:-(((( 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
core 1 
How reproducible: 
Believe me, I'll not try to reproduce that. 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Install having an exported VG spaning over 2 whole disks and 1 
2. Don't touch them in Disk Druid 
3. Try to re-import the VG 
Actual results: 
Expected results: 
The VG is available again.

With the newer LVM set up in the 2.6 kernel, I don't think that this
can occur anymore.
