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

NAME
       vgcfgbackup — backup volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS
       vgcfgbackup [--commandprofile ProfileName] [-d|--debug] [-f|--file ] [-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(8) for common options.
