       vgimport  allows  you  to make a volume group known to the
       system which has previously been exported (see vgexport(8)
       ) on this or another system.

       -d, --debug
              Enables  additional  debugging  output (if compiled
              with DEBUG).

       -f, --force
              Force import of volume group even though it is  not
              flagged exported.  This option allows the importing
              of volume groups from broken systems.

       -h, --help
              Print a usage message on standard output  and  exit

       -v, --verbose
              Display  verbose  runtime  information  about vgim­
              port's activities.


       "vgimport myvg /dev/sd[b-h]5" tries  to  make  new  volume
       group  "myvg" known to the system. The previously exported
       volume group (see vgexport(8) ) resides on disk partitions
       "/dev/sdb5" to "/dev/sdh5".


       vgimport returns an exit code of 0 for success and > 0 for

       1  no volume group name on command line
       2  invalid volume group name
       3  no physical volume(s) on command line
       4  volume group already exists
       5  physical volume occurs mutiple times on command line
       6  invalid physical volume name
       7  error reading physical volume
       8  physical volume is not exported
       9  error reallocating memory
       10 error allocating memory
       11 no valid physical volumes found
       12 physical volume belongs to a different exported volume group
       13 wrong number of physical volumes
       14 error reading VGDA from disk(s)
       99 invalid command line


       "vgimport this_import /dev/sdk3 /dev/sdj4" tries to import
       a  volume  group  contained on both partitions. The volume
       group this_import may not already exit. You have to  spec­
       ify  all physical volumes belonging to the exported volume
