11.2 Upgrade lost LVM

I just upgrade to 11.2 from 11.1 and appear to have lost my LVM, the following is what I see at the console:

[/sbin/fsck.ext (1) – /samba] fsck.ext3 -a /dev/system/samba
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/system/samba
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

is there any way to recover this???


So by LVM do you mean Logical Volume Management? Is this a single user system or a network server? What does LVM have to do with Samba? Perhaps you could give more detail about your hard drive setup and if you are using Samba shares in there somewhere.

Thank You,

I use the Logical Volume Management to create a big network share via samba, using multiple drives. No raid, just one big network share.

In my case it was mostly not activated lvm volumes. Try this:

vgchange -a y

Did that and got

File descriptor 5 (/dev/blog) leaked on vchange invocation. Parent PID 830: bash
Couldn’t find device with uuid ‘uGpwr5-mT4Z-51Ds-2qBD-XhKj-xkB8-pes7sV’.

Refusing activation of partial LV samba. Use --partial to override.
0 logical volume(s) in volume group “system” now active

If I use partial will I be able to recover??

It seems like you don’t have all physical volumes in your LVM. How many pv do you use?
