What you might need to do first is a vgscan so that it can go out and
find the volume groups first.  Then you need to activate them

vgchange -a y <volume group name>

Then you should be able to do

vgdisplay -v <volume group name>

this will display all the information and list the logical volumes
that you can mount.

Hope this helps
