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 (5) to restrict the scan to avoid a CD ROM, for example.
- Also checks the LVM special files in /dev that are needed for active logical volumes and creates any missing ones and removes unused ones.:
- Scan devices for LVM physical volumes and volume groups and instruct the lvmetad daemon to update its cached state accordingly.:
