Hi mikenash,

> I find a problem with the sizes of the dasd as reported by pvscan and fdisk

strange indeed - might it be someone resized the partition /dev/sda1, from 30 to 10 GB? What does "pvdisplay /dev/sda1" report? (For your records, I'd recommend to run "pvdisplay -m /dev/sda1" and save the output. Might be useful in case you really need to clean up some corruption.)
