Can I restore a volume group from a system that has two hdisks to a system with only one?

I'm sorry, this question is related to a previous one, but the 'ask related question' feature does not function as advertised.
I have a volume group image that I created from a system on which that volume group was mirrored accross hdisk4 and hdisk5. I'm trying to clone it with restvg on a system on which only hdisk5 appears to be healthy. Can I do that? When I run restvg I'm getting an error that's rather vague, so I don't know whether it's the defective disk that's causing the problem. My assumption is that restvg restores the image to one of the disks, and that I would have to create the submirror afterwards.
