NAME
       vgcfgbackup - backup volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS
       vgcfgbackup [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgcfgbackup  allows  you  to backup the metadata or Volume Group Descriptor Area (VGDA) of
       one to all volume groups to files in /etc/lvmconf.  If you don't give any volume groups in
       the  command line, all of them will be backed up.  This DOESN'T backup user/system data in
       logical volume(s)!  To restore volume group  descriptor	area  backups  see  the  vgcfgre-
       store(8)  tool.	 A  10 step history is backed up in /etc/lvmconf/VolumeGroupName.conf and
       /etc/lvmconf/VolumeGroupName.conf.[1-9].old. This enables you to restore your volume group
       configuration up to 10 steps back in the backup history.
