Lvm – Create an LVM snaphot targeting another volume group possible


I want to backup LVM volumes to another volume group. Is this possible?

sudo lvcreate -s /dev/$VG/$LV -n $SNAP_NAME $VS 2>>$LOG

In short: no, you can't. Snapshots must reside on the same volume group as the original volume. See here and here for more details.
