This is not nice :-(

>From the LVM changelog:

Version 2.02.73 - 18th August 2010
  Add --norestorefile option to pvcreate.
  Require --restorefile when using pvcreate --uuid.

That's how it's implemented in Rear.

Yet, CentOS and RHEL 6 are using 2.02.72 with some additional patches.
One of their patches adds the restorefile functionality.

Suggestions from anyone on how to handle this in a clean way?
Anyone aware of one of the distributions shipping unpatched 2.02.72? I
don't have my VMs nearby to test.

Did your restore work completely once you edited the diskrestore file?
