I have a vanilla CentOS 5.9 system. I have a pair of 2Tb sata drives with a RAID 1 array on them. This array contains an LVM physical volume. I have added these two drives to my system and now need to access the volume group on this physical volume. This volume group, vg0, contains 10 ext3 file systems and I need to get the data from them.
What do I know:
[root@mickey ~]# pvscan
PV /dev/sda2 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [465.66 GB / 0 free]
PV /dev/sdb1 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [465.75 GB / 0 free]
PV /dev/md125 lvm2 [1.81 TB]
Total: 3 [2.72 TB] / in use: 2 [931.41 GB] / in no VG: 1 [1.81 TB]
The first two contain the running system. The third one, /dev/md125 is my lvm physical volume.
[root@mickey ~]# pvdisplay
