NAME

       vgcfgrestore - restore volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       vgcfgrestore allows you to restore the metadata of VolumeGroupName from a text backup file
       produced by vgcfgbackup.  You can specify a backup file with --file.  If no backup file is
       specified, the most recent one is used.  Use --list for a list of the available backup and
       archive files of VolumeGroupName.

OPTIONS

       -l | --list — List files pertaining to VolumeGroupName
              List  metadata backup and archive files pertaining to VolumeGroupName.  May be used
              with the -f option.  Does not restore VolumeGroupName.

       -f | --file filename — Name of LVM metadata backup file
              Specifies  a  metadata  backup  or  archive  file  to   be   used   for   restoring
              VolumeGroupName.  Often this file has been created with vgcfgbackup.

       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.
