NAME
       pvck - check physical volume metadata

SYNOPSIS
       pvck [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [--labelsector]
       PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]

DESCRIPTION
       pvck checks physical volume LVM metadata for consistency.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       --labelsector sector
              By default, 4 sectors of PhysicalVolume are scanned for an LVM
              label, starting at sector 0.  This parameter allows you to
              specify a different starting sector for the scan and is useful
              for recovery situations.  For example, suppose the partition
              table is corrupted or lost on /dev/sda, but you suspect there
              was an LVM partition at approximately 100 MB.  This area of the
              disk may be scanned by using the --labelsector parameter with a
              value of 204800 (100 * 1024 * 1024 / 512 = 204800):

              pvck --labelsector 204800 /dev/sda

              Note that a script can be used with --labelsector to automate
              the process of finding LVM labels.
