Inactive logical volume after upgrading to Fedora 19

I upgraded my netbook to Fedora 19 beta version using yum. The process was smooth and went through without a hitch.

The problem came up on rebooting. Systemd waited and finally failed to mount home, which was a logical volume. This seemed strange as root and swap were also on the same volume group and were being used.

Finally, lvscan showed that the home logical volume was inactive. The command
lvchange --activate y 
worked and it was a relief to realize that the home logical partition was perfectly fine.

Unfortunately, rebooting the system showed the same problem. The cause of the problem was that all the lvm2 services were disabled.

Enabling lvm2-monitor.service resolved the issue :)
