How to mount LVM Volume twice
I am running a RedHat Enterprise 4 system in a VirtualServer environment. When I was running up2date the system crashed and would not complete a boot process. It seems that the disk is fine, but system software is not runnable.
I have another image of the same server from about 6 month ago. I have started running this older server to get my web server and mail server back up. It is working fine, although I still need to update it.
Now I want to mount the corrupted, more recent disk onto the currently running server so I can update my mail files for the mail of the last 6 months.
Since this is the same image, the Physical Volume ID of both volumes is identical. When I try to mount the volume on hdb2, LVM won't let me, saying that the volume is already mounted on hda2.
I won't fully claim newbie status, I am very rusty and I have never played with LVM before. Detailed instruction would be nice.
Is there a way to change the volume ID? Any other suggestions on how I could do this?
Is this the right forum or would there be a better place to ask this question?
Thanks for any suggestions.
