LVM Snaphost

I am using CentOS 6 for hosting a few Virtual Machines (XEN) with SolusVM. While creating a few similar VMs I installed one and created a few more by taking snapshots of the original VM. They all are in production and its LVM is still a Snapshot. The biggest problem I am facing is SolusVM backs up VMs by creating snapshot of every VM. But snapshot of snapshot doesn't work therefore the VMs created through snapshots are not being backed up.
Can someone please help me changing snapshot LVM to regular LVM?

I don't think this is possible, snapshots are not meant to be used as permanent storage/disk ... But you'll have noticed this by now probably :)

It would mean using something like lvconvert, but I don't see this as a feature it has.

You might be able to clone the machine and restore from a backup with dd... This site gives some good ideas on strategy of snapshots and all...
