       vgscan - scan all disks for volume groups and rebuild caches

       vgscan [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [--mknodes]
       [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose]

       vgscan scans all SCSI, (E)IDE disks, multiple devices and  a  bunch  of
       other  disk  devices in the system looking for LVM physical volumes and
       volume groups.  Define a filter in lvm.conf(5) to restrict the scan  to
       avoid a CD ROM, for example.

       In  LVM2, vgscans take place automatically; but you might still need to
       run one explicitly after changing hardware.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

	      Also checks the LVM special files in /dev that  are  needed  for
	      active  logical volumes and creates any missing ones and removes
	      unused ones.

	      Scan devices for LVM physical  volumes  and  volume  groups  and
	      instruct	the  lvmetad daemon to update its cached state accord‐
