Digimer, thanks!

Let me mentioned all.

I have SAN DiskA belongs to VG1 presented to node1 and node2. Node1 & Node2 is under the same cluster.
I created a snapshot of DiskA in Emc storage as BCV copy and called it DiskA-copy and presented it to Node3(not a cluster member).

I importclone the DiskA-copy to a new VG1_clone with lockingtype of 1 but it wont allow me saying skipping clustered volume. I think it is designed this way.

So what I did is use the LVM_SYSTEM_DIR to point to lockingtype of 0 and I was able to import it. 
Is this the way or there are other preferred way to do it.

If the node was removed from the cluster, then 'lvmconf 
--disable-cluster' will make the appropriate changes to the lvm.conf 
file (locking_type = 1). After that, turn off clvmd and you should be 
able to use the LVM as a normal stand-alone setup.
