Unhappy How do I fix LVM error

Hi All

I guess i was working on too many things or just too fast and configured several servers with LVM WITHOUT first using fdsik to partition the disks and change the type to 8e.

The result is I've got several volume groups with data on them that are made up of physical volumes without a partition table. Fdisk -l shows this.

How can I fix this witout losing all my data.

Can I use fdisk on this disks to repartition them and give them the LVM type?

Or maybe not partition but apply the LVM type?

any help is way appreciated!
