      vgrestore - restore a VxVM disk group back to an LVM volume group

      /usr/sbin/vgrestore vg_name

      The vgrestore command restores a Logical Volume Manager (LVM) volume
      group that was previously converted to a VxVM disk group by the
      vxvmconvert utility.

	   Specifies the name of a volume group that was converted to a VxVM
	   disk group by the vxvmconvert utility.

      vgrestore exits with one of the following values:

       0   Successful completion.

      >0   Failure; an error occurred.

      vgrestore functions only on VxVM disk groups that were converted from
      LVM volume groups by the vxvmconvert command.

      It is a good idea to back up user data before running vgrestore, and
      restore it after the vgrestore completes, as vgrestore can only
      restore a logical volume back to the state it was in before conversion
      to VxVM.	If data changed on the volume while it was a VxVM volume,
      the changes won't be reflected on the volume after being restored to

      As part of the original conversion process, applications that once
      referenced the now-converted LVM volume's path names may have changed
      to reference VxVM volume special device file names.  Alternatively,
      special device file path names originally representing the now-
      converted LVM volumes may have changed to symbolic links pointing to
      the VxVM volume path names.  Be sure to undo these actions when
      restoring back to LVM.

      Do not use vgrestore unless you are certain that you want to restore
      LVM volume groups.  After vgrestore this is run, the VxVM disks will
      no longer exist.

      To restore the LVM volume group vg03 that was converted by vxvmconvert
      to the VxVM disk group dg03, enter:
