NP. Just as an FYI, at command line, do lvm. Then type help. That gives
a nice little "index" to available commands. Then, at command line, a
"man <an LVM cmd>" gives more detail.

As a side note, if one did need to physically copy the data, pvmove
might be useful. It has checkpoint restart, so providing a relatively
secure way of doing that job. Of course, backups are always advisable
because all hardware, in my experience, has an undocumented "FLOP" (Fail
at Least Opportune Point) feature. =:-O
