Mounting LVM Parition inside an image file

As I am working on a project which required me to extract a script from an image file which was backup using dd tool.

It is possible to mount the image file on a linux server.

1) you need to scan the image file and see partition

[root@c10 sax]# kpartx -v IPC-2Sep2015.img
loop0p1 : 0 409600 /dev/loop0 2048
loop0p2 : 0 1024000 /dev/loop0 411648
loop0p3 : 0 123621376 /dev/loop0 1435648

2) add the partitionto the system

[root@c10 sax]# kpartx -a -v IPC-2Sep2015.img
add map loop0p1 (253:3): 0 409600 linear /dev/loop0 2048
add map loop0p2 (253:4): 0 1024000 linear /dev/loop0 411648
add map loop0p3 (253:5): 0 123621376 linear /dev/loop0 1435648
