Can I move an LVM as I can move an ISO
 
Can an LVM be copied or transferred to some remote server in a similar fashion as I can do with ISO.

I copy the ISO at one one place to some other location and on the second location I can mount this ISO as loopback device and do what ever I want.

Is similar thing possible with an LVM.

You can not copy or move LVM to another(remote) location. ISO is an image file and LVM is a volume(like partition). You can copy data but you can not copy partition or volumes.

I never tested this but quote from man page

vgexport allows you to make the inactive VolumeGroupName(s) unknown to the system.
if i understand correctly it is for inactive VG.
