       vgcfgrestore - restore volume group descriptor area


       vgcfgrestore    [-d|--debug]    [-f|--file   filename]   [-l[l]|--list]
       [-h|--help]    [-M|--Metadatatype1|2]    [-t|--test]     [-v|--verbose]


       vgcfgrestore allows you to restore the metadata of VolumeGroupName from
       a text backup file produced by vgcfgbackup.  You can specify  a  backup
       file  with --file.  If no backup file is specified, the most recent one
       is used.  Use --list for a list of the  available  backup  and  archive
       files of VolumeGroupName.


       -l | --list — List files pertaining to VolumeGroupName
              List   metadata   backup   and   archive   files  pertaining  to
              VolumeGroupName.  May be used with  the  -f  option.   Does  not
              restore VolumeGroupName.

       -f | --file filename — Name of LVM metadata backup file
              Specifies  a  metadata  backup  or  archive  file to be used for
              restoring VolumeGroupName.  Often this  file  has  been  created
              with vgcfgbackup.

       See lvm for common options.


       vgdisplay  --partial --verbose will show you the UUIDs and sizes of any
       PVs that are no longer present.  If a PV in the VG is lost and you wish
       to  substitute  another  of  the  same size, use pvcreate --restorefile
       filename --uuid uuid (plus  additional  arguments  as  appropriate)  to
       initialise  it  with  the  same UUID as the missing PV.  Repeat for all
       other missing PVs in the VG.  Then use vgcfgrestore --file filename  to
       restore the volume group’s metadata.
