On Knoppix

root at Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# lvm version
  LVM version:     2.02.95(2) (2012-03-06)
  Library version: 1.02.74 (2012-03-06)
  Driver version:  4.23.0

On Debian Live CD
  LVM version:     2.02.95(2) (2012-03-06)
  Library version: 1.02.74 (2012-03-06)
  Driver version:  4.22.0

The usage of LVM instead of MD raid was not chosen by me and LVM is a
temporary choice  to move VMdisks from local to the NAS (iSCSI)

I'll post the detailed output as I was asked.
I wonder if the problem is only with the creation of the second leg of the
volume and the mirrored mirror_logs. If it so I guess I can use whatever
distro that has LVM version more recent then 2.02.97 and then handle it
with less recent version...
