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

NAME
       vgimport — make exported volume groups known to the system

SYNOPSIS
       vgimport  [-a|--all]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|-?|--help]  [-S|--select Selection] [-v|--verbose]
       [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgimport allows you to make a Volume Group that was previously exported using  vgexport(8)
       known  to  the  system  again,  perhaps after moving its Physical Volumes from a different
       machine.  vgexport clears the VG system ID, and vgimport sets the VG system  ID  to  match
       the host running vgimport (if the host has a system ID).

OPTIONS
       See lvm(8) for common options.

       -a, --all
              Import all exported Volume Groups.

       --force
              Import  exported  Volume  Groups  even if there are missing Physical Volumes.  This
              option should only be used if the missing devices are known to have failed and they
              cannot be restored.
