    Command:

    vgimportclone

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           vgimportclone [-n|--basevgname  VolumeGroupName]  [-i|--import]  Physi-
           calVolume [PhysicalVolume...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           vgimportclone  is  used  to import a duplicated VG (e.g. hardware snap-
           shot).  Duplicate VG(s) and PV(s) are not able to be  used  until  they
           are  made  to  coexist  with the origin VG(s) and PV(s).  vgimportclone
           renames the VG associated with the  specified  PV(s)  and  changes  the
           associated VG and PV UUIDs.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           See lvm for common options.
    
           -n|--basevgname VolumeGroupName
                  By  default the snapshot VG will be renamed to the original name
                  plus a numeric suffix to avoid duplicate naming (e.g.  'test_vg'
                  would  be renamed to 'test_vg1').  This option will override the
                  base VG name that is used for all VG renames.  If a  VG  already
                  exists  with  the  specified name a numeric suffix will be added
                  (like the previous example) to make it unique.
    
           -i|--import
                  Import exported Volume Groups.  Otherwise  VGs  that  have  been
                  exported will not be changed (nor will their associated PVs).
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

           LVM_BINARY
                  The LVM2 binary to use.  Defaults to "lvm".
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

           If  origin  VG test_vg has PVs /dev/loop0 and /dev/loop1 and /dev/loop2
           and /dev/loop3 are respective snapshot  PVs  of  the  origin  PVs.   To
           rename the VG associated with /dev/loop2 and /dev/loop3 from test_vg to
           test_vg_snap (and change associated VG and PV UUIDs):
    
                vgimportclone --basevgname test_vg_snap /dev/loop2 /dev/loop3
