Probably safest/easiest, I agree. Depends on the fate of that system
though... if it's fubar, you might need to swap disks, in which case
take care (and backups!).

Not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean "export (share) a filesystem
that's on an LVM virtual drive to another machine", or "add a remote
NFS share into an LVM volume"?

The former - yes, definitely. Once it's mounted, it's identical to any
other filesystem.

The latter - I'm not certain, but it seems very unlikely.

If you meant something else entirely, you need to do a bit more
explaining. Maybe an example would help me understand.
