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

NAME
       vgexport - make volume groups unknown to the system

SYNOPSIS
       vgexport [-a|--all] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [-v|--verbose] VolumeGroupName [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgexport allows you to make the inactive VolumeGroupName(s) unknown to the system.  You can then move all the Physical Volumes in that Vol-
       ume Group to a different system for later vgimport(8).  Most LVM2 tools ignore exported Volume Groups.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       -a, --all
	      Export all inactive Volume Groups.

NAME
vgconvert - convert volume group metadata format SYNOPSIS
vgconvert [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [--labelsector] [-M|--metadatatypetype] [--pvmetadatacopies#copies] [--meta- datasizesize] [--version] VolumeGroupName [VolumeGroupName...] DESCRIPTION
vgconvert converts VolumeGroupName metadata from one format to another provided that the metadata fits into the same space. OPTIONS
See lvm(8) and pvcreate(8) for options. EXAMPLE
Convert volume group vg1 from LVM1 metadata format to the new LVM2 metadata format. vgconvert -M2 vg1 RECOVERY
Use pvscan(8) to see which PVs lost their metadata. Run pvcreate(8) with the --uuid and --restorefile options on each such PV to reformat it as it was, using the archive file that vgconvert(8) created at the start of the procedure. Finally run vgcfgrestore(8) with that ar- chive file to restore the original metadata. SEE ALSO
