NAME
       vgcfgbackup - backup volume group descriptor area

SYNOPSIS
       vgcfgbackup  [-d|--debug]  [-f|--file  filename] [-h|--help] [--ignore-
       lockingfailure] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose] [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION
       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 sep-
       arate  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.
