VGCFGBACKUP(8)              System Manager's Manual             VGCFGBACKUP(8)



NAME
       vgcfgbackup - backup volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS
       vgcfgbackup [-d|--debug] [-f|--file filename] [-h|--help]
       [--ignorelockingfailure] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose]
       [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgcfgbackup allows you to backup the metadata of your volume groups.
       If you don't name any volume groups on the command line, all of them
       will be backed up.

       In a default installation, each volume group gets backed up into a
       separate file bearing the name of the volume group in the directory
       /etc/lvm/backup.  You can write the backup to an alternative file using
       -f.  In this case if you are backing up more than one volume group the
       filename is treated as a template, and %s gets replaced by the volume
       group name.

       NB. This DOESN'T backup user/system data in logical volume(s)!  Backup
       /etc/lvm regularly too.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.
