See lvm(8) for common options.
By default, 4 sectors of PhysicalVolume are scanned for an LVM
label, starting at sector 0. This parameter allows you to
specify a different starting sector for the scan and is useful
for recovery situations. For example, suppose the partition
table is corrupted or lost on /dev/sda, but you suspect there
was an LVM partition at approximately 100 MiB. This area of
the disk may be scanned by using the --labelsector parameter
with a value of 204800 (100 * 1024 * 1024 / 512 = 204800):
pvck --labelsector 204800 /dev/sda
Note that a script can be used with --labelsector to automate
the process of finding LVM labels.
