I have a volumegroup which consists of three harddisks and several LVs (var,tmp,root,swap). One of the harddisks crashed recently, but i urgently need some data from LV var. So, after rebooting the machine without the crashed disk, i run
vgchange -D -a y volGroup0
in order to activate the volumegroup and mount the logical volumes. However, the command returns
Cannot activate XXX. All segments are missing ... 0 logical volume(s) in volume group "volGroup0" now active.
What does that mean? Is all data lost? What could be the next step in order to rescue some data?
