+Logical volumes cannot be split between volume groups, and vgsplit only moves
+complete physical volumes (for movement of a part of a physical volume, see 
+\fBpvmove(8)\fP).  Each existing logical volume must be entirely on the physical
+volumes forming either the source or the destination volume group.  For this
+reason, \fBvgsplit\fP may fail with an error if a split would result in a
+logical volume being split across volume groups.
