Please also try to add the "_netdev" option /etc/fstab for the LVM volumes.
Then systemd will consider these "network" mounts which are not necessary
for initial boot. This option is preferred over "nofail", because "nofail"
would happily continue if these devices don't show up at all, whereas
"_netdev" would check the mounts, only at a later stage in the boot process.

Using _netdev / nofail does allow the system to boot. The volume group is not
initialized though with this workaround.

After booting it is requires to manually activate it by running pvchange -ay .
