What do you mean? Are you using LVM to create volumes then trying to
mount them with your xen config files to use as volumes in your DomUs?

If so, just use this in your config file:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/xen/xen_machine,xvda,w', ]

Where xen is the volume group and xen_machine is the volume. Increment
xvd(a,b,c,etc) for each volume, its the volume name it will be mounted
with in the DomU. w makes it writeable.
