NAME

       vgscan - scan all disks for volume groups and rebuild caches


SYNOPSIS

       vgscan [-d/--debug] [-h/-?/--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [--mknodes]
       [-P/--partial] [-v/--verbose]


DESCRIPTION

       vgscan scans all SCSI, (E)IDE disks, multiple devices and  a  bunch  of
       other  disk  devices in the system looking for LVM physical volumes and
       volume groups.  Define a filter in lvm.conf(8) to restrict the scan  to
       avoid a CD ROM, for example.

       In  LVM2, vgscans take place automatically; but you might still need to
       run one explicitly after changing hardware.


OPTIONS

       See lvm for common options.

       --mknodes
              Also checks the LVM special files in /dev that  are  needed  for
              active  logical volumes and creates any missing ones and removes
              unused ones.
