Ok, the server didn't crash, rather I had several snapshots open and shut the
without dis-mounting them. At bootup the LVM filesystems failed to mount, sadly I didn't
record the error text. I recall mention of EXT2 errors and something like the device isn't present.
What I did to make the server come up is:
# Remove the snapshots lvdisplay lvremove -f /dev/disk/drive1_bk # Activate volumes that were marked "LV Status NOT available" lvdisplay lvchange -a y /dev/disk/drive1
