+.SS Merge thin snapshots
+
+\&
+
+A thin snapshot can be merged into its origin thin LV using the lvconvert
+--merge command.  The result of a snapshot merge is that the origin thin
+LV takes the content of the snapshot LV, and the snapshot LV is removed.
+Any content that was unique to the origin thin LV is lost after the merge.
+
+Because a merge changes the content of an LV, it cannot be done while the
+LVs are open, e.g. mounted.  If a merge is initiated while the LVs are open,
+the effect of the merge is delayed until the origin thin LV is next
+activated.

+.SS XFS on snapshots
+
+\&
+
+Mounting an XFS file system on a new snapshot LV requires attention to the
+file system's log state and uuid.  On the snapshot LV, the xfs log will
+contain a dummy transaction, and the xfs uuid will match the uuid from the
+file system on the origin LV.
+
+If the snapshot LV is writable, mounting will recover the log to clear the
+dummy transaction, but will require skipping the uuid check:
+
+mount /dev/VG/SnapLV /mnt -o nouuid
+
+Or, the uuid can be changed on disk before mounting:
+
+xfs_admin -U generate /dev/VG/SnapLV
+.br
+mount /dev/VG/SnapLV /mnt
+
+If the snapshot LV is readonly, the log recovery and uuid check need to be
+skipped while mounting readonly:
+
+mount /dev/VG/SnapLV /mnt -o ro,nouuid,norecovery
