In some circumstances, you may want to restore an LVM volume group from a VxVM disk group, for example:

Complete restoration from backups of the LVM configuration and user data is required if the VxVM configuration has changed.

If a conversion is interrupted, you can complete it by running the command /etc/vx/bin/vxlvmconv, provided that you have not made any changes to the system that would make conversion impossible.
