Dead disks, and lvm woes

As posted earlier on the rather recently announced CRANberries feed (that is generated and hosted on my box) covering CRAN package updates, my main server bit the dust. The hard disk no longer wants to talk to any of its lvm partitions, leaving me without /usr, /var/, /var/local/, /home, /srv. Fortunately, most of this was backed-up but now I have to go through reconfiguring the replacement machine I already set up. Not fun.

If anybody has tips on recovering the lvm partitions, I'm all ears. /etc/lvm/ seems fine if that helps as a starting point.
