I was told that this is incorrect information by Heinz and that you _should_
run vgscan after running vgcfgrestore because it brings the /etc/lvmtab and
/etc/lvmtab.d/ in sync with the newly restored VGDA.  Sorry about that.  I
was mixed up.

THE LESSER-KNOWN PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES #16:
C- This language was named for the grade received by its creator when he
submitted it as a class project in a graduate programming class.  C- is
best described as a "low-level" programming language.  In fact, the
language generally requires more C- statements than machine-code statements
to execute a given task.  In this respect, it is very similar to COBOL.
