NAME
       vgimport - make exported volume groups known to the system

SYNOPSIS
       vgimport  [-a|--all]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|-?|--help]  [-v|--verbose] Vol-
       umeGroupName [VolumeGroupName...]

DESCRIPTION
       vgimport allows you to make a Volume Group that was previously exported
       using  vgexport(8)  known to the system again, perhaps after moving its
       Physical Volumes from a different machine.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       -a, --all
              Import all exported Volume Groups.

       --force
              Import exported Volume Groups even if there are missing Physical
              Volumes.  This option should only be used if the missing devices
              are known to have failed and they cannot be restored.
