Hey

Not sure if this will answer your question, but what i will do is create a new logical volume on the VG you want it definitely;  mount it in a temporal mount point and copy all information, using tar

original LV mount point example   = /app
Temporally lv mount point = /app2

cd /app
tar cvf - *|(cd /app2; tar vfx -) this will copy all info with rights and everything


Regards.
