   vgcfgrestore allows you to restore the metadata of VolumeGroupName from
   a text backup file produced by vgcfgbackup.  You can specify  a  backup
   file  with --file.  If no backup file is specified, the most recent one
   is used.  Use --list for a list of the  available  backup  and  archive
   files of VolumeGroupName.


   See lvm(8) for common options.

   -l, --list
          List  files  pertaining  to VolumeGroupName List metadata backup
          and archive files pertaining to VolumeGroupName.   May  be  used
          with the -f option.  Does not restore VolumeGroupName.

   -f, --file filename
          Name  of LVM metadata backup file Specifies a metadata backup or
          archive file to be used for  restoring  VolumeGroupName.   Often
          this file has been created with vgcfgbackup.

          Necessary to restore metadata with thin pool volumes.
          WARNING:  Use  with  extreme  caution.   Most  changes  to  thin
          metadata cannot be reverted.  You may lose data if  you  restore
          metadata  that  does  not  match  the  thin pool kernel metadata


   vgdisplay --partial --verbose will show you the UUIDs and sizes of  any
   PVs that are no longer present.  If a PV in the VG is lost and you wish
   to substitute another of the  same  size,  use  pvcreate  --restorefile
   filename  --uuid  uuid  (plus  additional  arguments as appropriate) to
   initialise it with the same UUID as the missing  PV.   Repeat  for  all
   other  missing PVs in the VG.  Then use vgcfgrestore --file filename to
   restore the volume group's metadata.
