no LVM information - VG lost

Recommended Posts

Hi to everybody here at the forum.

I'm new to this forum and I hope you can help me with my problem, so thanks in advance to everybody.

 

A "short" description to my setup.

I have my Xpenology running on DSM 5.2 Build 5644 onto a Hyper-V VM with a Raid-5 and 5 data disks.

The disks are mapped via passthrough to the VM, so that means I cannot use Snapshots on this VM.

 

My Problem is, that after a power outage the DSM tried to check the data consistency and within that check there where some errors on 2 of the disks that caused those disks to go offline.

So the LVM was in a failed state with only 3 of 5 disks active.

I rebootet the DSM to try to automatically fix this problem, but that does not work. I guess because these disk got marked as failed.

After google-ing around to find a solution I decided to recreate the LVM as from what I read, it should detect the active raid-system on the disks and rebuild the lvm.

 

After I did that the LVM was active again, but I'm not able to see my volumes. But the used size of the "new" LVM is showing a correct/similiar size from what I last knew it.

Here are some outputs from my box, that might be helpful to find a solution

Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/md2

 

This is everything I currently know what could be useful

information for you to help.

 

I hope anybody can hell to reassemble the volumes.

 

As I said, thanks in advance.

I would try mounting the array with linux first. Sometimes Synonolgy will mark the array as bad, when it's not really bad. How to undo that I'm not sure. But if your array is working (even if synology says it's bad), you should be able to mount it in linux and get to your data to back it up, then start over w/ synology.

 

I went through my own experience years ago, that I documented here: https://forum.cgsecurity.org/phpBB3/fou ... t2600.html

 

Good luck!
