       vgcfgbackup - backup volume group descriptor area

       vgcfgbackup [-d|--debug] [-f|--file filename] [-h|--help]
       [--ignorelockingfailure] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose]

       vgcfgbackup allows you to backup the metadata of your volume groups.
       If you don't name any volume groups on the command line, all of them
       will be backed up.

       In a default installation, each volume group gets backed up into a
       separate file bearing the name of the volume group in the directory
       /etc/lvm/backup.  You can write the backup to an alternative file using
       -f.  In this case if you are backing up more than one volume group the
       filename is treated as a template, and %s gets replaced by the volume
       group name.

       NB. This DOESN'T backup user/system data in logical volume(s)!  Backup
       /etc/lvm regularly too.

       See lvm for common options.
