Mounting an LVM file system

So after recovering a box which had a controller failure we needed to mount the old fs to recover some stuff.

when trying to mount /dev/sdc2 we got:

mount: unknown filesystem type ‘LVM2_member’

fix is easy :

modprobe dm-mod

vgchange -ay

lvscan now yields:

ACTIVE '/dev/VolGroup/lv_root' [50.00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/VolGroup/lv_home' [178.46 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/VolGroup/lv_swap' [3.94 GiB] inherit

mount /dev/VolGroup/lv_root /mnt/tempdisk/

et viola` !!

nJoy 😉
