[linux-lvm] Renaming Loopback 'Mounted' Volume Group

Please take a look at this old thread first ...
This was back in February and I'm just now trying to get back into
recovery mode. I've mounted the image like so:
/sbin/losetup /dev/loop0 ./recover.img
/sbin/kpartx -lv /dev/loop0
/sbin/kpartx -av /dev/loop0
This gives me /dev/mapper/loop0p1, and /dev/mapper/loop0p2 which seem to
be my original boot drive and VolGroup00. When I do an lvscan I get:
WARNING: Duplicate VG name VolGroup00: Existing
Vmi02d-0hr7-7NVb-vYZi-1fbD-E9n5-ixWu0a (created here) takes precedence
Presumably the latter is the UUID of the volume group on my disk image.
Is there a way that I can now rename this original volume group so it
doesn't conflict with my currently mounted one so I can start the data
recovery process? I tried vgrename, which I thought could use UUID's as
input, but that didn't work. Any ideas?
Thanks - Tod
