You mean you had two Physical Volumes in one Volume Group and one
Logical Volume in that group, spanning both PVs?

Please show the output of pvs, lvs and vgs.

What do pvscan and 'vgchange -ay' tell you?

The problem with your setup is that you can only access the data when
both disks are available. I suspect one of them has some sort of problem
and you may need to, *cough*, restore from backup.

When I am at nightclubs I enjoy looking at other people and assessing
their imagined problems.
