Tried it. No luck. I also tried everything from wiki.davidjb.com/… (hence the "/dev/dm-1: read failed..." in some of my output) but that didn't work either.

comment Can't remove open logical volume
Added the info you requested to the question. It was being used as a volume for OpenStack Compute (aka Nova). I actually managed to remove it by going nuclear and rebooting the machine and then doing an lvremove. Way more drastic than I wanted to be. I still have some other volumes hanging around that I would like to get rid of without having to reboot so any help you can provide is appreciated.

It doesn't contain anything. It's not a partition. It's not mounted (any longer). No active snapshots.

This works for me. For anyone following along substitute $KEY for test_ident, user@middle for hostA and target for hostB

comment rsync via multiple ssh connections with a key
A big part of the problem is that my public key on target had a copy/paste error so I couldn't do passwordless authentication to target in the first place. Now that it's fixed the accepted answer below worked for me. Thanks to all for the help.

Yep. First "ssh-add $KEY" then "ssh-agent" finally "ssh -A user@middle ssh user@target" and I still get the Permission denied.

Doing a "ssh -i $KEY -fN root@middle -L2211:target:22" works without prompting me for a password but when I try "rsync -e "ssh -p 2211" /dir/on/local/ root@localhost:/dir/on/target/ -avz --progress" I get asked for root@localhost's password. What could I be missing?
