NAME

lvscan - scan (all disks) for logical volumes  

SYNOPSIS

lvscan [-a|--all] [-b|--blockdevice] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [--ignorelockingfailure] [-P|--partial] [-v|--verbose]  

DESCRIPTION

lvscan scans all known volume groups or all supported LVM block devices in the system for defined logical volumes.  

OPTIONS

See lvm for common options.
--all
Include information in the output about internal Logical Volumes that are components of normally-accessible Logical Volumes, such as mirrors, but which are not independently accessible (e.g. not mountable). For example, after creating a mirror using 'lvcreate -m1 --mirrorlog disk', this option will reveal three internal Logical Volumes, with suffixes mimage_0, mimage_1, and mlog.
-b, --blockdevice
Adds the device major and minor numbers to the display of each logical volume.
