RHEL LVM Error

I am not able to extend a Filesystem on RHEL, This is error I receive


[root@csc061a ~]# lvextend -L +71G -r /dev/mapper/optvg-splunkvar
  Snapshot origin volumes can be resized only while inactive: try lvchange -an
  Run `lvextend --help' for more information.

How do I increase the Filesystem, I know that I have run resize2fs after the lvextend command is successful, so please help


I have enough space in the volume group "optvg
[root@csc061a ~]# vgs

  VG     #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize   VFree
  optvg    3   5   1 wz--n- 274.99g 75.09g

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

error says system not permitted online resizing hence first make it inactive by taking downtime on FS and then extend.
