vgmerge [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [-l|--list] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] DestinationVolumeGroupName SourceVolumeGroupName

OPTIONS

See lvm for common options. -l, --list Display merged DestinationVolumeGroupName like "vgdisplay -v".
-t, --test Do a test run WITHOUT making any real changes.

Examples

"vgmerge -v databases my_vg" merges the inactive volume group named "my_vg" into the active or inactive volume group named "databases" giving verbose runtime information.
