NAME

       vgcfgbackup - backup volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS

       vgcfgbackup     [-d|--debug]     [-f|--file    filename]    [-h|--help]
       [--ignorelockingfailure]         [-P|--partial]          [-v|--verbose]
       [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION

       vgcfgbackup  allows  you  to backup the metadata of your volume groups.
       If you don’t name any volume groups on the command line,  all  of  them
       will be backed up.

       In  a  default  installation,  each  volume group gets backed up into a
       separate file bearing the name of the volume  group  in  the  directory
       /etc/lvm/backup.  You can write the backup to an alternative file using
       -f.  In this case if you are backing up more than one volume group  the
       filename  is  treated as a template, and %s gets replaced by the volume
       group name.

       NB. This DOESN’T backup user/system data in logical volume(s)!   Backup
       /etc/lvm regularly too.
