LVM VG recovery

Hi all,
I been trying to recover a volume group of single PV.
vgcfgrestore output

Code:
[root@tkdb ~]# vgcfgrestore vgoraData
  Couldn't find device with uuid 'a3onP5-RdbR-fdgq-sDkS-ZtFs-83Q5-kFJj43'.
  Cannot restore Volume Group vgoraData with 1 PVs marked as missing.
  Restore failed.

fdisk output

Code:
[root@tkdb ~]# fdisk -l

The disk which holds LVM metadata and data

Code:
[root@tkdb ~]# fdisk /dev/sdj

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 1435.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
   (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

Command (m for help): p

Does anyone have idea what could be the problem?
