comment How can I copy a LVM logical volume to a loopback file on another system?
It turned out that my issue was due to the LV being a Xen disk image however this would be the preferred method of copying an LV to a disk image file.

So it turned out that the volume I was trying to copy was an old Xen disk image, not just a normally formatted partition. I was able to mount it using losetup as described here: blog.leenix.co.uk/2010/07/…

Nothing in dmesg but there is this in /var/log/messages: Aug 9 16:38:18 target-system kernel: hfs: unable to find HFS+ superblock. Going to try creating the snapshot per answer below.

FYI: The system log sometimes takes a while to appear as available in the console. I've had it take up to 30.
