LVM2 tools default to using a new improved metadata format.
To tell some tools to use the old LVM1 format of metadata, you need -M1.
(Most tools work it out for themselves, but some, like vgcreate
& vgcfgrestore still need to be told).

You can change the default choice for all tools back to the LVM1 format 
in the config file with:
  global { format = "lvm1" }
