NAME
       vgsplit - split a volume group into two

SYNOPSIS
       vgsplit	 [--alloc   AllocationPolicy]	[-A|--autobackup  {y|n}]  [-c|--clustered  {y|n}]
       [-d|--debug]  [-h|--help]  [-l|--maxlogicalvolumes  MaxLogicalVolumes]  [-M|--metadatatype
       type]	[-p|--maxphysicalvolumes    MaxPhysicalVolumes]   [-n|--name   LogicalVolumeName]
       [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] SourceVolumeGroupName DestinationVolumeGroupName [ PhysicalVol-
       umePath ...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgsplit moves one or more physical volumes from SourceVolumeGroupName into DestinationVol-
       umeGroupName. The physical volumes moved can be specified  either  explicitly  via  Physi-
       calVolumePath,  or implicitly by -n LogicalVolumeName, in which case only physical volumes
       underlying the specified logical volume will be moved.

       If DestinationVolumeGroupName does not exist, a new volume group  will  be  created.   The
       default	attributes  for  the new volume group can be specified with --alloc, --clustered,
       --maxlogicalvolumes, --metadatatype,  and  --maxphysicalvolumes	(see  vgcreate(8)  for	a
       description  of	these  options).   If  any  of	these  options	are  not  given,  default
       attribute(s) are taken from SourceVolumeGroupName.

       If DestinationVolumeGroupName does exist,  it  will  be	checked  for  compatibility  with
       SourceVolumeGroupName  before  the physical volumes are moved. Specifying any of the above
       default volume group attributes with an existing destination volume group is an error, and
       no split will occur.

       Logical	volumes  cannot  be  split  between volume groups. Vgsplit(8) only moves complete
       physical volumes: To move part of a physical volume, use pvmove(8).  Each existing logical
       volume  must be entirely on the physical volumes forming either the source or the destina-
       tion volume group.  For this reason, vgsplit(8) may fail with an error if  a  split  would
       result in a logical volume being split across volume groups.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.
