       pvck — check physical volume metadata


       pvck    [--commandprofile    ProfileName]    [-d|--debug]   [-h|--help]
       [-v|--verbose]       [--labelsector       sector]        PhysicalVolume


       pvck checks physical volume LVM metadata for consistency.


       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --labelsector sector
              By  default,  4 sectors of PhysicalVolume are scanned for an LVM
              label, starting at sector  0.   This  parameter  allows  you  to
              specify  a  different starting sector for the scan and is useful
              for recovery situations.  For  example,  suppose  the  partition
              table  is  corrupted  or lost on /dev/sda, but you suspect there
              was an LVM partition at approximately 100 MiB.  This area of the
              disk  may be scanned by using the --labelsector parameter with a
              value of 204800 (100 * 1024 * 1024 / 512 = 204800):

              pvck --labelsector 204800 /dev/sda

              Note that a script can be used with  --labelsector  to  automate
              the process of finding LVM labels.
