vgexport — make volume groups unknown to the system


vgexport [-a|--all] [--commandprofile ProfileName] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [--reportformat {basic|json}] [-S|--select Selection] [-v|--verbose] [VolumeGroupName...]


vgexport allows you to make the inactive VolumeGroupName(s) unknown to the system. You can then move all the Physical Volumes in that Volume Group to a different system for later vgimport(8). Most LVM2 tools ignore exported Volume Groups. vgexport clears the VG system ID, and vgimport sets the VG system ID to match the host running vgimport (if the host has a system ID).


See lvm(8) for common options.

-a, --all
Export all inactive Volume Groups.
