Exclamation LVM error with kernel & lvmtab

I need urgent assistance with an error I received.

When I attempt a pvdisplay, pvcreate, vgchange, etc. I get the following error:

"ERROR: VGDA in kernel and lvmtab are NOT consistent; please run vgscan"

vgscan will not fix the problem. I have two VGs, rootvg and orainst_vg (which I previously created), however vgscan only recognizes rootvg.

How do I get lvm back to normal so I can recreate orainst_vg (if needed)?!!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

vgscan scans your disks. If its not finding one of your VGs it unfortunately suggests one of your disks has gone kaput.

Well, a simple reboot from the drac cleaned up the /proc/lvm/global file so that it only contains rootvg. I was then able to recreate my orainst_vg and my LVs. The reboot was my last option since a previous reboot had gone bad, but this time I was able to access the drac after the card was reseated.
