       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(8) for common options.
