Hi --

I forgot to remove an LVM snapshot after making a backup.  Now neither
the snapshot nor the original volume are available.
How do I recover and get the original volume back online?

Currently, the output of lvs looks like

  LV               VG         Attr   LSize   Origin    Snap%  Move Log Copy% 
  dom5_data        VolGroup01 -wi-ao  10.00G                                                                
  domTemplate_data VolGroup01 -wi-a-   2.00G                                                                                      
  dom6_data        VolGroup02 owi-i-  24.00G                                 
  dom6_snap        VolGroup02 swi-d-   1.00G dom6_data 100.00  

Any help very much appreciated!
