NAME
       pvck - check physical volume metadata

SYNOPSIS
       pvck  [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [--labelsector] PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVol-
       ume...]

DESCRIPTION
       pvck checks physical volume LVM metadata for consistency.

OPTIONS
       See lvm 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 ta-
	      ble is corrupted or lost on /dev/sda, but you suspect there was an LVM partition at
	      approximately 100 MB.  This area of the disk may be scanned by using  the  --label-
	      sector 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 find-
	      ing LVM labels.
