       vgimportclone - import and rename duplicated volume group (e.g. a hard‐
       ware snapshot)

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

       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.

       See lvm(8) 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).

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

       The  origin  VG "vg00" has origin PVs "/dev/sda" and "/dev/sdb" and the
       respective snapshot PVs are "/dev/sdc" and "/dev/sdd".  To  rename  the
       VG associated with "/dev/sdc" and "/dev/sdd" from "vg00" to "vg00_snap"
       (and to change associated VG and PV UUIDs) do:

       vgimportclone --basevgname vg00_snap /dev/sdc /dev/sdd
