NAME

       pvscan - scan all disks for physical volumes

SYNOPSIS

       pvscan  [-d|--debug]  [-e|--exported]  [-h|--help] [-n|--novolumegroup]
       [-s|--short] [-u|--uuid] [-v[v]|--verbose [--verbose]]

DESCRIPTION

       pvscan scans all supported LVM block devices in the system for physical
       volumes.

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

       -e, --exported
              Only  show physical volumes belonging to exported volume groups.

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

       -n, --novolumegroup
              Only show physical volumes not belonging to any volume group.

       -s, --short
              Short listing format.

       -u, --uuid
              Show  UUIDs  (Unifrom  Unique Identifiers) in addition to device
              special names.

       -v, --verbose
              Gives verbose runtime information about pvscanā€™s activities.  If
              given a second time it displays the attributes of found physical
              volumes like pvdisplay(8) does.

DIAGNOSTICS

       pvscan returns an exit code of 0 for success or >0 for error:

       1  error reading physical volumes
       2  no physical volumes 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))
       99 invalid command line
