VGRENAME(8)                                                        VGRENAME(8)



NAME
       vgrename - rename a volume group

SYNOPSIS
       vgrename  [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [-t|--test]
       [-v|--verbose] OldVolumeGroup{Path|Name|UUID} NewVolumeGroup{Path|Name}

DESCRIPTION
       vgrename  renames an existing (see vgcreate(8) ) volume group from Old-
       VolumeGroup{Name|Path|UUID} to NewVolumeGroup{Name|Path}.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

Examples
       "vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group" renames existing volume group
       "vg02" to "my_volume_group".

       "vgrename vg02 my_volume_group" does the same.

       "vgrename     Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4    VolGroup00_tmp"
       changes the name of the Volume Group with  UUID  Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-
       o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 to "VolGroup00_tmp".

       All the Volume Groups visible to a system need to have different names.
       Otherwise many LVM2 commands will refuse to run or  give  warning  mes-
       sages.

       This situation could arise when disks are moved between machines.  If a
       disk is connected and it contains a Volume Group with the same name  as
       the  Volume Group containing your root filesystem the machine might not
       even boot correctly.  However, the two Volume Groups should  have  dif-
       ferent  UUIDs (unless the disk was cloned) so you can rename one of the
       conflicting Volume Groups with vgrename.
