       vgextend - add physical volumes to a volume group

       vgextend allows you to add one or  more	initialized  physical  volumes
       (see  pvcreate(8))  to  an  existing volume group to extend it in size.
       Moreover, it allows you to re-add a physical volume that has gone miss‐
       ing  previously, due to a transient device failure, without re-initial‐
       ising it. Use vgextend --restoremissing to that effect.

       If PhysicalDevicePath was not previously configured for LVM with pvcre‐
       ate(8),	the  device  will  be initialized with the same default values
       used with pvcreate(8).  If non-default pvcreate(8) values are  desired,
       they  may  be  given on the commandline with the same options as pvcre‐
       ate(8).	See PHYSICAL DEVICE OPTIONS for available options.  Note  that
       the  restore-related options such as --restorefile, --uuid and --physi‐
       calvolumesize are not available.	 If a restore operation is needed, use
       pvcreate(8) and vgcfgrestore(8).

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       The  following  options are available for initializing physical devices
       in the volume group.  These options are further described in the pvcre‐
       ate(8) man page.

       -f, --force

       -y, --yes

       -Z, --zero {y|n}

       --labelsector sector

       --metadatasize size

       --metadataignore {y|n}

       --pvmetadatacopies copies

       --dataalignment alignment

       --dataalignmentoffset alignment_offset

       Extends	the  existing  volume group "vg00" by the new physical volumes
       (see pvcreate(8)) "/dev/sda4" and "/dev/sdn1".
