You are correct. The reinit would have wiped the previous LVM structure and 
created a new one.
Check /etc/lvm/archive or /etc/lvm/backup for a backup vg config. You can then 
use vgcfgrestore to restore the previous configuration onto the SR.

HBAoLVM is the default SR type for anything attached via FC through XenCenter.
