NAME

       lvmdiskscan  -  scan  for  all  disks  /  multiple devices / partitions
       available

SYNOPSIS

       lvmdiskscan     [-d|--debug]      [-h|--help]      [-l|--lvmpartitions]
       [-v|--verbose]

DESCRIPTION

       To give an overview about online peripherals usable to LVM, lvmdiskscan
       scans all SCSI, (E)IDE disks, multiple, loop and network block  devices
       in  the  system  and  lists them on standard output with name, size and
       type (text/hex). The size is the real device size, not the size  stored
       in the VGDA (See pvcreate(8) ) for details.

   OPTIONS
       -d/--debug
              Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG).

       -h, --help
              Print  a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.

       -l, --lvmpartition
              Gives an overview about all  LVM  system  identified  partitions
              only.

       -v, --verbose
              Gives    verbose   runtime   information   about   lvmdiskscan’s
              activities.

DIAGNOSTICS

       lvmdiskscan returns an exit code of 0, if disks /  multiple  devices  /
       partitions where found and > 0 for error:

       1  no special files found
       2  no disks / multiple devices / disk partitions found

       95 driver/module not in kernel
       96 invalid I/O protocol version
       97 error locking logical volume manager
       98 invalid lvmtab (run vgscan(8))
