vgsplit



SYNOPSIS

       vgsplit  [-A|--autobackup  {y|n}]  [-d|-ebug]  [-h|--help]
       [-l|--list] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [--version]  Exist­
       ingVolumeGroupName  NewVolumeGroupName  PhysicalVolumePath
       [PhysicalVolumePath...]


DESCRIPTION

       vgsplit  moves  one  or  more  PhysicalVolumePath(s)  from
       ExistingVolumeGroupName into NewVolumeGroupName.  Physical
       volumes that are split off to the new  volume  group  must
       not contain any partial logical volumes.  Use pvmove(8) to
       move logical volumes to the desired physical volumes.

   OPTIONS
       -A, --autobackup {y|n}
              Controls automatic backup of VG metadata after  the
              merge (see vgcfgbackup(8)).  Default is yes.

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

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

       -l, --list
              Display split volume group names like vgdisplay -v.

       -t, --test
              Do a test run WITHOUT any real changes.

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

       --version
              Display tool and IOP version and exit successfully.


EXAMPLE

       To separate physical volumes /dev/sdk1 and /dev/sdn1  from
       the  existing volume group databases and put them into new
       volume group my_vg.

            vgsplit -v databases my_vg /dev/sdk1 /dev/sdn1


DIAGNOSTICS

       vgsplit returns an exit code of 0 for success and > 0  for
       error:

       1  invalid volume group name
       16 error inserting new volume group name into lvmtab

       95 driver/module not in kernel
       96 invalid I/O protocol version
       97 error locking logical volume manager
       98 invalid lvmtab (run vgscan(8))
       99 invalid command line


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       LVM_AUTOBACKUP
              If  this variable is set to "no" then the automatic
              backup of VG metadata is turned off.

       LVM_VG_MAX_BACKUPS
              This variable determines the backup  history  depth
              of kept VGDA copy files in /etc/lvmconf.  It can be
              set to a positive number between 0  and  999.   The
              higher  this  number  is,  the more changes you can
              restore using vgcfgrestore(8).
