Dear Stuart and list,

I was thinking about snapshot and copy, but it looks like "less
professional" than split a LV mirror.
I can explain: When I copy is difficult to say that I kept the same
permissions and ownership; Different of a mirror, that the process really
guarantee by itself that the data is still with the same characteristic.

Thank you all,
