Debian :: Accessing lvm from single user mode

We have /usr mounted on lvm,  so it’s tricky to get the commands in
/usr/bin and /usr/sbin to work in single user mode. lvm devices wont
be loded by default.

lvm vgscan
lvm vgchange -ay
lvm lvs

Now you should see your normal LVM devices in /dev (example:
/dev/LVM-GROUP/LVM-VOLUME) . You can mount and use them.
