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.
See lvm(8) for common options.
Also checks the LVM special files in /dev that are needed for
active logical volumes and creates any missing ones and
removes unused ones.
Send a notification to D-Bus. The command will exit with an
error if LVM is not built with support for D-Bus notification,
or if the notify_dbus config setting is disabled.
Scan devices for LVM physical volumes and volume groups and
instruct the lvmetad daemon to update its cached state
