NAME
       pvck — check physical volume metadata

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

DESCRIPTION
       pvck checks physical volume LVM metadata for consistency.

OPTIONS
       See lvm(8) 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 ta‐
              ble is corrupted or lost on /dev/sda, but you suspect there was an LVM partition at
              approximately 100 MiB.  This area of the disk may be scanned by using the  --label‐
              sector 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 find‐
              ing LVM labels.
