Re: vgchange:Quorum not present, or some physical volume(s) are missing.

while you cana ctivate the volume by overriding the quorum, you need to find out what disks are giving problem.

activate vg
vgchange -a y -q n /dev/vgxx

Once activated, find out which pvs are not seen by this vg. vgdisplay. Then check what is wrong with those disks.

ioscan
diskinfo
stm

We can activate it using the following command but dont mount the FS without confirming what happened to the remaining pv's

# vgchange -a y -q n -s /dev/vgname

-s (prevents vgsync to start if the volume is mirrored, use if required only)

post the following
# any error reported by the above command
# ioscan -fn
# vgdisplay -v vgname
# vgcfgrestore -l -f /etc/lvmconf/vgname.conf
# vgcfgrestore -l -f /etc/lvmconf/vgname.conf.old
