NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for vgcfgrestore (netbsd section 8)

VGCFGRESTORE(8) 								  VGCFGRESTORE(8)

NAME
       vgcfgrestore - restore volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS
       vgcfgrestore  [-d|--debug]  [-f|--file  filename]  [-l[l]|--list]  [-h|--help] [-M|--Meta-
       datatype1|2] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] VolumeGroupName

DESCRIPTION
       vgcfgrestore allows you to restore the metadata of VolumeGroupName from a text backup file
       produced by vgcfgbackup.  You can specify a backup file with --file.  If no backup file is
       specified, the most recent one is used.	Use --list for a list of the available backup and
       archive files of VolumeGroupName.

OPTIONS
       -l | --list -- List files pertaining to VolumeGroupName
	      List  metadata backup and archive files pertaining to VolumeGroupName.  May be used
	      with the -f option.  Does not restore VolumeGroupName.

       -f | --file filename -- Name of LVM metadata backup file
	      Specifies a metadata backup or archive file to be used for  restoring  VolumeGroup-
	      Name.  Often this file has been created with vgcfgbackup.

       See lvm for common options.

REPLACING PHYSICAL VOLUMES
       vgdisplay  --partial  --verbose	will  show you the UUIDs and sizes of any PVs that are no
       longer present.	If a PV in the VG is lost and you wish to substitute another of the  same
       size, use pvcreate --restorefile filename --uuid uuid (plus additional arguments as appro-
       priate) to initialise it with the same UUID as the missing PV.  Repeat for all other miss-
       ing  PVs  in  the VG.  Then use vgcfgrestore --file filename to restore the volume group's
       metadata.
