NAME

       vgextend - add physical volumes to a volume group

SYNOPSIS

       vgextend  [-A|--autobackup  y|n]  [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [
       PHYSICAL DEVICE OPTIONS ] VolumeGroupName PhysicalDevicePath [PhysicalDevicePath...]

DESCRIPTION

       vgextend allows you to add one or more initialized physical volumes ( see pvcreate(8) ) to
       an existing volume group to extend it in size.

       If  PhysicalDevicePath was not previously configured for LVM with pvcreate (8), the device
       will be initialized with the same default  values  used  with  pvcreate.   If  non-default
       pvcreate  values  are  are  desired,  they  may  be given on the commandline with the same
       options as pvcreate.  See PHYSICAL DEVICE OPTIONS for available options.   Note  that  the
       restore-related  options  such  as --restorefile, --uuid, and --physicalvolumesize are not
       available.  If a restore operation is needed, use pvcreate (8) and vgcfgrestore (8).

OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

PHYSICAL DEVICE OPTIONS

       The following options are available for initializing physical devices in the volume group.
       These options are further described in the pvcreate man page.

       -f, --force

       -y, --yes

       -Z, --zero y|n

       --labelsector sector

       --metadatasize size

       --pvmetadatacopies copies

       --dataalignment alignment

       --dataalignmentoffset alignment_offset

Examples

       "vgextend  vg00  /dev/sda4  /dev/sdn1" tries to extend the existing volume group "vg00" by
       the new physical volumes (see pvcreate(8) ) "/dev/sdn1" and /dev/sda4".
