+.B clvmd -d2
 .br
 .TP
-.I \-t <timeout>
-Specifies the timeout for commands to run around the cluster. This should not
-be so small that commands with many disk updates to do will fail, so you
-may need to increase this on systems with very large disk farms. 
-The default is 30 seconds.
+.BR \-E < "\fIlock uuid" >
+Pass lock uuid to be reacquired exclusively when clvmd is restarted.
 .TP
-.I \-T <start timeout>
-Specifies the timeout for clvmd daemon startup. If the daemon does not report 
-that it has started up within this time then the parent command will exit with 
-status of 5. This does NOT mean that clvmd has not started! What it means is 
-that the startup of clvmd has been delayed for some reason; the most likely 
-cause of this is an inquorate cluster though it could be due to locking 
-latencies on a cluster with large numbers of logical volumes. If you get the 
-return code of 5 it is usually not necessary to restart clvmd - it will start
-as soon as that blockage has cleared. This flag is to allow startup scripts
-to exit in a timely fashion even if the cluster is stalled for some reason.
-.br
-The default is 0 (no timeout) and the value is in seconds. Don't set this too

+Selects the cluster manager to use for locking and internal communications,

+clvmd will use the first cluster manager that succeeds, and it checks them
+in the order cman,corosync,openais. As it is quite possible to have
+(eg) corosync and cman available on the same system you might have to
+manually specify this option to override the search.
+.TP
+.B \-R
 Tells all the running clvmds in the cluster to reload their device cache and
 re-read the lvm configuration file. This command should be run whenever the
 devices on a cluster system are changed.
 .TP
-.I \-S
+.B \-S
 Tells the running clvmd to exit and reexecute itself, for example at the
 end of a package upgrade.  The new instance is instructed to reacquire
 any locks in the same state as they were previously held.  (Alternative
 methods of restarting the daemon have the side effect of changing
 exclusive LV locks into shared locks.)
