       vgmknodes - create volume group directory and special files

       vgmknodes [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [VolumeGroupPath | VolumeGroupName...]

       vgmknodes  creates  the	volume	group  directory and special files for an existing volume
       group. This is to restore deleted special files.  Owner, group and file	permissions  will
       not be restored.

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

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

       -v, --verbose
	      Gives verbose information about vgmknode's activities.

       "vgmknodes  /dev/vg02"  tries to remove /dev/vg02 and all contained special files and then
       creates them again based on the VGDA.

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

       1  invalid volume group name
       2  error checking existence of volume group
       3  error removing volume group device special files
       4  error creating volume group device special files
