ok..firstly confirm whether you are using HA-LVM, not GFS/GFS2 .. correct?

if ha-lvm, your vg should only be imported/mounted on one node, instead of
multiple nodes.

if you run this command on node1, assuming vg1, you still can use "vgchange
-cy vg1" on node2 to import the vg and use it on node2.

as long as you don't mount volumes of same vg ( still assuming you are not
using gfs/gfs2) on multiple nodes at the same time.. you won't corrupt

snapshot or backup is always an essential part when you do migration.
