Mounting LVM disk when "suspended"


I'm trying to mount a volume which pvdisplay reports as "suspended". I also get the message it is "too large for underlying size". This is the point at which I would expect it to mount, but it keeps asking for the file type:

[root@mojo /]# mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Heres the supporting info, any ideas please? Thanks:

[root@mojo /]# lvdisplay

Have you tried deactivating the VG then reactivating ?
deactivate :
vgchange -an

activate :
vgchange -ay

device-mapper is complaining "resume ioctl failed: Invalid argument"
