I am attempting to access data on a LVM2 partition that was corrupted from a "pvcreate -ff"
when running pvs, the results look healthy with a Physical volume of 238 GB with no VG(volume Group) that it belongs to.
When the "pvcreate -ff" was performed, the lvdisplay also showed a valid logical volume.
Further attempts to mount the LVM was halted with fear of damaging the partition, which was now already done out of negligence.
The LVM contains a single ext2/3 filesystem unencrypted on one hard drive containing Fedora Code 8. Worst case scenario, I would imagine a ext2/3 drive scan and recovery is possible with getdataback or similar.
The drive contained the OS and root folders, thus the metadata backup of the LVM is unaccessible at the current time.
Initially, I am looking for a solution to place the Physical/Logical volume into a new volume group to access the files. I can connect the drive to a working fedora core 12 machine that i am looking to copy the drive contents onto.
Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?
I can get printouts of 'pvs', but am unsure what other commands can be run without loosing the data.
