So do you get  'partial' error on thin-pool activation on your physical server ?

Then you likely miss some PV on your system.

As that's the only way how lvm2 can give you this report - it cannot find all 
required PVs for the VG - so you cannot activate without partial activation.

You should easily spot which PV is missing with -vvvv  trace for
lvchange -ay
