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

NAME
       vgimportclone — import and rename duplicated volume group (e.g. a hardware snapshot)

SYNOPSIS
       vgimportclone [-n|--basevgname VolumeGroupName] [-i|--import] PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVol‐
       ume...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgimportclone is used to import a duplicated VG (e.g. hardware snapshot).  Duplicate VG(s)
       and PV(s) are not able to be used until they are made to coexist with the origin VG(s) and
       PV(s).  vgimportclone renames the VG associated with the specified PV(s) and  changes  the
       associated VG and PV UUIDs.

OPTIONS
       See lvm(8) for common options.

       -n, --basevgname VolumeGroupName
              By default the snapshot VG will be renamed to the original name plus a numeric suf‐
              fix to avoid duplicate naming (e.g. 'test_vg'  would  be  renamed  to  'test_vg1').
              This  option  will override the base VG name that is used for all VG renames.  If a
              VG already exists with the specified name a numeric suffix will be added (like  the
              previous example) to make it unique.

       -i, --import
              Import  exported  Volume Groups.  Otherwise VGs that have been exported will not be
              changed (nor will their associated PVs).

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       LVM_BINARY
              The LVM2 binary to use. Defaults to "lvm".

Examples
       The origin VG "vg00" has origin PVs "/dev/sda" and "/dev/sdb" and the respective  snapshot
       PVs  are  "/dev/sdc"  and  "/dev/sdd".   To  rename  the VG associated with "/dev/sdc" and
       "/dev/sdd" from "vg00" to "vg00_snap" (and to change associated VG and PV UUIDs) do:

       vgimportclone --basevgname vg00_snap /dev/sdc /dev/sdd
