       vgcfgbackup - backup volume group descriptor area


       vgcfgbackup     [-d|--debug]     [-f|--file    filename]    [-h|--help]
       [--ignorelockingfailure]         [-P|--partial]          [-v|--verbose]


       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.


       See lvm for common options.
