    vgsplit

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           vgsplit  [--alloc AllocationPolicy] [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-c|--clus-
           tered {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-l|--maxlogicalvolumes  MaxLogi-
           calVolumes] [-M|--metadatatype type] [-p|--maxphysicalvolumes MaxPhysi-
           calVolumes] [-n|--name  LogicalVolumeName]  [-t|--test]  [-v|--verbose]
           SourceVolumeGroupName  DestinationVolumeGroupName  [ PhysicalVolumePath
           ...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           vgsplit moves one or more physical volumes  from  SourceVolumeGroupName
           into  DestinationVolumeGroupName.  The  physical  volumes  moved can be
           specified either explicitly via PhysicalVolumePath, or implicitly by -n
           LogicalVolumeName,  in  which case only physical volumes underlying the
           specified logical volume will be moved.
    
           If DestinationVolumeGroupName does not exist, a new volume  group  will
           be  created.   The  default  attributes for the new volume group can be
           specified  with  --alloc,  --clustered,  --maxlogicalvolumes,   --meta-
           datatype,  and  --maxphysicalvolumes (see vgcreate(8) for a description
           of these options).  If any of these  options  are  not  given,  default
           attribute(s)  are taken from SourceVolumeGroupName. If a non-LVM2 meta-
           data type (e.g. lvm1) is being used, you should use the  -M  option  to
           specify the metadata type directly.
    
           If  DestinationVolumeGroupName  does exist, it will be checked for com-
           patibility with SourceVolumeGroupName before the physical  volumes  are
           moved. Specifying any of the above default volume group attributes with
           an existing destination volume group is an error,  and  no  split  will
           occur.
    
           Logical  volumes cannot be split between volume groups. Vgsplit(8) only
           moves complete physical volumes: To move part of a physical volume, use
           pvmove(8).  Each existing logical volume must be entirely on the physi-
           cal volumes forming either the source or the destination volume  group.
           For  this  reason,  vgsplit(8)  may fail with an error if a split would
           result in a logical volume being split across volume groups.
