Hi Ray, thanks for the faster reply...

The problem is that node B is unable to deactivate the Snapshot LV,
because the command

   $> lvchange -aen vg/lv01

fails with the message posted above (Can't change logical volume "lv01").

What is the correct way to deactivate the Snapshot LV in this scenario?

Thanks!
