       vgimport - make volume groups known to the system

       vgimport [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] VolumeGroupName PhysicalVol-
       umePath [PhysicalVolumePath...]

       vgimport allows you to make a volume group known to the system which has  previously  been
       exported (see vgexport(8) ) on this or another system.

       -d, --debug
	      Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG).

       -f, --force
	      Force  import  of volume group even though it is not flagged exported.  This option
	      allows the importing of volume groups from broken systems.

       -h, --help
	      Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.

       -v, --verbose
	      Display verbose runtime information about vgimport's activities.

       "vgimport myvg /dev/sd[b-h]5" tries to make new volume group "myvg" known to  the  system.
       The  previously	exported  volume  group  (see  vgexport(8)  )  resides on disk partitions
       "/dev/sdb5" to "/dev/sdh5".

       vgimport returns an exit code of 0 for success and > 0 for error:

       1  no volume group name on command line
       2  invalid volume group name
       3  no physical volume(s) on command line
       4  volume group already exists
       5  physical volume occurs mutiple times on command line
       6  invalid physical volume name
       7  error reading physical volume
       8  physical volume is not exported
       9  error reallocating memory
       10 error allocating memory
       11 no valid physical volumes found
       12 physical volume belongs to a different exported volume group
       13 wrong number of physical volumes
       14 error reading VGDA from disk(s)
       15 VGDA is inconsistent
       16 invalid logical volume count
       17 error getting a free volume group number
       18 error writing VGDA to physical volumes
       19 error creating VGDA in kernel
       20 error inserting volume group into lvmtab
       21 error doing backup of VGDA to disk
       22 error storing VGDA in lvmtab
       23 not enough free logical volume manager block specials available

       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

       "vgimport this_import /dev/sdk3 /dev/sdj4" tries to import a  volume  group  contained  on
       both  partitions.  The  volume group this_import may not already exit. You have to specify
       all physical volumes belonging to the exported volume group.
