       pvck — check physical volume metadata


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