vgscan - scan all disks for volume groups and rebuild caches
vgscan [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [--mknodes] [-P|--partial]
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.
See lvm for common options.
Also checks the LVM special files in /dev that are needed for active logical vol-
umes and creates any missing ones and removes unused ones.
