I have an 80G drive in an old computer running Debian Sarge (have used both 2.6.8 and 2.6.12 kernel) that acts as a samba server. Recently I upgraded the server with two 250G sata drives and a Sil3114 based SYBA sata controller card. When mounted by themselves, the 250G drives work fine with no problems.
The problem is when I try to add the drives to my current logical volume. I can add the drives to the volume group, extend the volume, and extend the file system -- but when I reboot the UUID of the drives must change! I also tried copying a bunch of files over to the logical volume and got corruption.
Upon executing a lvs/lvscan/vgs/vgscan command I get...
debian:~# vgs --partial
Partial mode. Incomplete volume groups will be activated read-only.

So why would the drives work on their own but not with LVM? Makes me feel like LVM is to blame, but it's working fine with the 80G IDE-connected drive.
Soo.. what gives!?
I now also have the problem of not being able to access any data stored within the LV on the 80G drive..
Any suggestions/comments/thoughtless ramblings both welcome and greatly encouraged!
