Thanks a lot for your answer. I have used this manual way for the last couple of weeks. I would like to automate the process. Would it be possible with udev?

I have used vgscan in the past to actually find the volume group followed by the next command:
to find that you should use: /sbin/vgchange -a y VolumeGroupHereVG00
now your volume group is added and available in /dev/mapper where you can mount it:
mount /dev/mapper/VolumeGroupHereVG00-LogicalVolumeHereLV00 /data
i also found noticed a bug in selinux policy related to hald/dbus and lvm in preview. the policy maintainer is aware of it and it should be fixed soon upstream.
Remember to disable the volume group before removing the device:
vgchange -a n VolumeGroup
Any ideas on automating the process? As soon as the volume is plugged in the password is asked automatically. I think this is done by Gnome-Volume-Manager. Only the vg is not recognized and the volume not mounted.
