Corrupt LVM metadata header after kernel update

I'm running Debian Wheezy (Linux wheezy3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.63-2+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux) as an encrypted LVM with hardware raid 1 (Adaptec 6405E) on a supermicro server.

I was encounting the following errors during the the kernel update:

Running depmod.

Here is the output for pvdisplay, vgdisplay, lvdisplay, df, pvs, lvs, vgs:

What would be the best workaround to fix the corrupted metadata header? I have an identical machine (same hardware, same partitions, same wheezy installation, same apt sources) running without any problems.

The second machine doesn't have this output in the pvdislay-command:

  "/dev/sda1" is a new physical volume of "243.00 MiB"
