NAME

       vgcfgrestore - restore volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS

       vgcfgrestore  [-d|--debug]  [-f|--file filename] [-l[l]|--list[--list]]
       [-h|--help]    [-M|--Metadatatype1|2]    [-n|--name    VolumeGroupName]
       [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION

       vgcfgrestore  allows  you to restore the metadata of your volume groups
       from a text backup file produced by vgcfgbackup.

OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

REPLACING PHYSICAL VOLUMES

       vgdisplay --partial --verbose will show you the UUIDs and sizes of  any
       PVs that are no longer present.  If a PV in the VG is lost and you wish
       to substitute another of the  same  size,  use  pvcreate  --restorefile
       filename  --uuid  uuid  (plus  additional  arguments as appropriate) to
       initialise it with the same UUID as the missing  PV.   Repeat  for  all
       other  missing PVs in the VG.  Then use vgcfgrestore --file filename to
       restore the volume group’s metadata.
