vgexport - make volume groups unknown to the system SYNOPSIS
vgexport [-a|--all] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [--version] [VolumeGroupName...] DESCRIPTION
vgexport allows you to make the inactive VolumeGroupName unknown to the system. You can then move all of the physical volumes in that vol- ume group to a different system for later vgimport(8). An exported volume group is not detected by vgscan(8), but pvscan(8) will show which physical volumes belong to the exported volume group. OPTIONS -a, --all Exports all inactive volume groups. -d, --debug Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG). -h, --help Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully. -v, --verbose Display verbose runtime information about vgexport's activities. --version Display tool and IOP version and exit successfully. DIAGNOSTICS
vgexport returns an exit code of 0 for success and > 0 for error: 1 no volume groups found at all 2 no volume group name on command line 95 driver/module not in kernel 96 invalid I/O protocol version 97 error locking logical volume manager 98 invalid lvmtab (run vgscan(8)) 99 invalid command line SEE ALSO
