lvmdiskscan — scan for all devices visible to LVM2


lvmdiskscan [--commandprofile ProfileName] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [-l|--lvmpartition] [-v|--verbose]


lvmdiskscan scans all SCSI, (E)IDE disks, multiple devices and a bunch of other block devices in the system looking for LVM physical volumes. The size reported is the real device size. Define a filter in lvm.conf(5) to restrict the scan to avoid a CD ROM, for example.


See lvm(8) for common options.

-l, --lvmpartition

Only reports Physical Volumes.
