I have now migrated to thin snapshots:

These are my logical volumes:

#  lvs

 LV     VG       Attr       LSize   Pool   Origin Data%  Meta%  Move Log
Cpy%Sync Convert
  fedora vgfedora Vwi-a-tz-- 700.00g pool00        16.61

  pool00 vgfedora twi-aotz-- 929.75g               12.50  16.61

But I am unable to boot now due to these errors:

Nov 24 10:44:00 localhost.HPNotebook dracut-initqueue[861]: Scanning

Nov 24 10:44:00 localhost.HPNotebook dracut-initqueue[888]: Can't process
LV vgfedora/fedora: thin target support missing from kernel?

I have tried to mark the volumes as active by :

                lvchange -kn vgfedora/pool00
                lvchange -kn vgfedora/fedora

But no change.

How do I add the dm-thin-pool module ? I can't even boot.
