NAME
       vgexport - make volume groups unknown to the system

SYNOPSIS
       vgexport  [-a|--all]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|--help]	[-v|--verbose]	[--version] [VolumeGroup-
       Name...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgexport allows you to make the inactive VolumeGroupName unknown to the system.	 You  can
       then move all of the physical volumes in that volume 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
