Should we change

To make the volume group known to the system
vgexport \$VOLUMEGROUP

to

To make the volume group known to the system
vgimport \$VOLUMEGROUP

?

vgexport makes volume groups unknown to the system, vgimport makes exported volumes known to the system. See also this. You should also remember, that both vgexport/vgimport alter the data on the physical device. I also added "loop" option to the mount command example, since "-o ro" may alter the data in the file system (replay the journal, etc) .FUF (talk) 10:19, 7 May 2014 (CDT)
