vgmknodes(8) [bsd man page]

VGMKNODES(8)						      System Manager's Manual						      VGMKNODES(8)

NAME
       vgmknodes - recreate volume group directory and logical volume special files

SYNOPSIS
       vgmknodes [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [--refresh] [-v|--verbose] [[VolumeGroupName | LogicalVolumePath]...]

DESCRIPTION
       Checks the LVM2 special files in /dev that are needed for active logical volumes and creates any missing ones and removes unused ones.

OPTIONS
       --refresh
	      If  any  logical	volume	in the volume group is active, reload its metadata.  This is not necessary in normal operation, but may be
	      useful if something has gone wrong or if you're doing clustering manually without a clustered lock manager.

       See lvm for common options.

SEE ALSO

NAME
vgscan - scan all disks for volume groups and rebuild caches SYNOPSIS
vgscan [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [--mknodes] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose] DESCRIPTION
vgscan scans all SCSI, (E)IDE disks, multiple devices and a bunch of other disk devices in the system looking for LVM physical volumes and volume groups. Define a filter in lvm.conf(5) to restrict the scan to avoid a CD ROM, for example. In LVM2, vgscans take place automatically; but you might still need to run one explicitly after changing hardware. OPTIONS
See lvm for common options. --mknodes Also checks the LVM special files in /dev that are needed for active logical volumes and creates any missing ones and removes unused ones. SEE ALSO
