Software required to mount Linux LVM Volume

Say, I have a Linux Volume that have been unable to mount - was part of a software Raid and looking for Linux software that can automatically attempt to mount this volume - need contents of the mysql directory and then can format the drive :)

Details of the entire system below.

I want to only mount
/dev/sdb2              14       30272   243055417+  8e  Linux LVM


In the interim sda has been removed - system is even simpler.

The software should preferably create a boot Disk or else have a GUI from withing CentOS 7 or Ubuntu as have Live CD's for both.

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

If your using Redhat or a redhat variant:

install lvm2

yum install lvm2

Run the following commands to make the partitions available:

vgscan
vgchange -a y

Then you should be able to find the partitions in your /dev folder.  Of course you will have to change the names to match what was returned with the above commands.

mount /dev/volumegroup/logicalvolume /mnt/folder
