I don't think out why thin volumes can not be active on multiple nodes even read-only.It is intuitive that activating thin volumes in read-only mode will neither change it's ownmeta-data nor the pool's.If I "force" the thin volumes to be active by, for example, changing the source code, what errors will occur?
