Linux Admin - mounting attached BV from another machine?

BV backup restored, attached, but won't mount...


I have a Block Volume Backup from a iSCSI attached Oracle 7 Linux VM. I've restored the backup to a BV. I've attached the BV to another Oracle 7 Linux VM as para-virtualized (I just need to check some logs and maybe copy 1 file.) I do lsblk and I see the device sdg. I mkdir /frank. I try to mount: mount /dev/sdg /frank and I get:

[root@orusjdbtt01 ~]# mount /dev/sdg /frank
mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'

[root@orusjdbtt01 ~]# file -s /dev/sdg
/dev/sdg: LVM2 PV (Linux Logical Volume Manager), UUID: YQvkVL-BpGj-lLbh-Aawq-cwWd-um3y-Yqt6jc, size: 214748364800

Howdy, Stranger!
