vgscan not working / ignite not recreating volume groups
I encountered a problem the other day with ignite not recreating the volume groups properly - it was caused by a component of service guard that was stuck on that machine. For some reason (maybe because serviceguard was once installed on the box), the file /dev/slvmvg (serviceguard file for shared volume groups) also prevented vgscan from working. Once I removed the file, vgscan created the volume groups without a problem.
