       vgcfgbackup - backup volume group descriptor area


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


       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.
