Making sure you know which are original and which are snapshot, run pvchange -u
on the snapshot ones, then vgchange -u and vgrename.

Use a filter in lvm.conf (env var LVM_SYSTEM_DIR to use different one if this is
an automated process, not a one-off) or with --config on each command so only
the snapshot devices are visible.
