Hemng,

'lvconvert --replace ..." reports the new PV does  not have enough space
(89 needed/49 available) to suit full replacement and rejects as
replacement requires complete SubLVs to move off respective PVs.

Check lsblk (or lvs -ao+devices) after the pvmove to confirm a partial move
across resulting remaining allocations for leg 0 on /dev/sdh, i.e no
replacement

Use a larger PV to be able to replace.

Best,
Heinz
