Is it posible to recover and inactive lvm snapshot (COW table Full) ?

Hi,

 

I was using a lvm snapshot as the root disk for a VM(kvm) server, the snapshot got full 100% used,  it is renderd unusable and is deactivated.

 

The problem is I have some info on the VM that I would like to recover if possible, anyone knows if there is a way to reactivate the lvol?.

 

[~]$ S lvs | egrep '(controller|LV)' (11-05 12:49)
LV VG Attr LSize Pool Origin Data% Move Log Cpy%Sync Convert
controller fedora swi-Ios--- 11.00g vmmaster 100.00

[~]$ S lvscan | grep -i inacti (11-05 12:50)
inactive Snapshot '/dev/fedora/controller' [11.00 GiB] inherit

Windows?, no thanks
