Hello everyone,

I am stuck with a problem with hardware copies: I have an IBM Fastt 
Storage with the Flashcopy and  Volumecopy features, which allows me to 
copy a complete drive. However, when making such a copy of a PV (only one 
in my VG for the time beeing) I'm unable to access the PV on the same 
host. The reason: "Found duplicate PV". 
Is there a way to access such an hardware-copy LVMed drive on the same 
host where the original drive is already in use? If yes, how? And if I 
tried to access it on another host, could it conflict if on the second 
host exists a VG with the same name?

Any insights are greatly appreciated...
