Hi andyleigood,

> Couldn't find device with uuid JEQPT2-Vgae-r9MJ-f361-UmDO-TxjJ-zXjk9N

my guess is that either the drive got physically removed (unlikely, I'd suppose you'd know about that) or that a drive was wiped (i.e. via "dd") or forcibly pvcreate'd, giving it a new uuid. Now from LVM's point of view, the PV with the original uuid is missing.

What exactly is your question?

Regards,
Jens

1 pv were forcibly removed.
I have solved this problem.
Thank you.
