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(5) 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.
