Mounting LVM partitions

I recently ran out of hard drive space on my Proxmox installation. I decided to upgrade the hard drive and originally did so by cloning the 250GB drive onto a 1TB drive using DD. I quickly realized there was a problem with the new drive as I was getting many ATA errors. Next step was to re-install Proxmox on yet another 1TB drive. With the new Proxmox installation up and running I now needed to get the images off the original drive and figured I’d just mount it in the new installation to copy, however I forgot the old drive was LVM partitioned.

fdisk -l
