LVREMOVE(8)                                                        LVREMOVE(8)



NAME
       lvremove - remove a logical volume

SYNOPSIS
       lvremove [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|-?|--help]
       [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] LogicalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...]

DESCRIPTION
       lvremove removes one or more logical  volumes.   Confirmation  will  be
       requested  before  deactivating  any  active  logical  volume  prior to
       removal.  Logical volumes cannot be deactivated or removed  while  they
       are open (e.g. if they contain a mounted filesystem).  Removing an ori-
       gin logical volume will also remove all dependent snapshots.

       If the logical volume is clustered then it must be deactivated  on  all
       nodes  in  the cluster before it can be removed. A single lvchange com-
       mand issued from one node can do this.

OPTIONS
       See lvm(8) for common options.

       -f, --force
              Remove active logical volumes without confirmation.

EXAMPLES
       Remove the active logical volume lvol1 in  volume  group  vg00  without
       asking for confirmation:

            lvremove -f vg00/lvol1

       Remove all logical volumes in volume group vg00:

            lvremove vg00
