       vgimport — make exported volume groups known to the system


       vgimport  [-a|--all]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|-?|--help]  [-S|--select Selection] [-v|--verbose]


       vgimport allows you to make a Volume Group that was previously exported using  vgexport(8)
       known  to  the  system  again,  perhaps after moving its Physical Volumes from a different
       machine.  vgexport clears the VG system ID, and vgimport sets the VG system  ID  to  match
       the host running vgimport (if the host has a system ID).


       See lvm(8) for common options.

       -a, --all
              Import all exported Volume Groups.

              Import  exported  Volume  Groups  even if there are missing Physical Volumes.  This
              option should only be used if the missing devices are known to have failed and they
              cannot be restored.
