SYNOPSISvgimportclone [-n|--basevgname VolumeGroupName] [-i|--import] Physi‐
DESCRIPTIONvgimportclone 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.
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
