       pvck - check physical volume metadata


       pvck    [-d|--debug]    [-h|--help]    [-v|--verbose]   [--labelsector]
       PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]


       pvck checks physical volume LVM metadata for consistency.


       See lvm 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
              table is corrupted or lost on /dev/sda, but  you  suspect  there
              was  an LVM partition at approximately 100 MB.  This area of the
              disk may be scanned by using the --labelsector 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 finding LVM labels.
