[linux-lvm] Mounting hardware snapshots/clones on the same host ?



Hello,

I've seen this question a few times in the archives but without any answer.

Is there a way to activate/mount a copy of a volume group taken with a disk-array based point-in-time copy on the same host ?

The issue is that the disk-array based software will copy all information on 
the disk including PVID/VGID's which is confusing for Linux's LVM.

Special tools are available on other platforms (vgchgid on HP-UX, recreatevg on AIX) for this purpose.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
Olivier
