       vgcfgrestore - restore volume group descriptor area

       vgcfgrestore [-d|--debug] [-f|--file filename] [-l[l]|--list]
       [-h|--help] [-M|--Metadatatype1|2] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose]

       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.

       -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.

       See lvm for common options.

       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.
