I'm attempting to remove an old 300GB drive from my volume group and replace it with a shiny, new 1TB drive.
pvmove operation ran until 99.9% and then aborted. I believe this is because I ran
/dev/sdf directly instead of creating a partition. My problem is, it moved the physical extents to
/dev/sdf but the original drive,
/dev/sdc1 is still in the volume group, and they both have identical extent counts. It seems that my vg has a duplicate set of extents.
Every guide for removing a disk from a vg involves a
pvmove and a
vgreduce. Since the extents are duplicate, I don't want to move them; I need to remove them from the vg entirely. How should I do this without damaging the integrity of the existing volume group?
