NAME

       pvresize - resize a disk or partition in use by LVM2

SYNOPSIS

       pvresize    [-d|--debug]    [-h|--help]    [-t|--test]   [-v|--verbose]
       [--setphysicalvolumesizesize] PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]

DESCRIPTION

       pvresize resizes PhysicalVolume which may already be in a volume  group
       and have active logical volumes allocated on it.

OPTIONS

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --setphysicalvolumesize size
              Overrides  the  automatically-detected size of the PV.  Use with
              care, or prior to reducing the physical size of the device.

EXAMPLES

       Expand the PV on /dev/sda1 after enlarging the partition with fdisk:

       pvresize /dev/sda1

       Shrink the PV on /dev/sda1 prior to shrinking the partition with  fdisk
       (ensure that the PV size is appropriate for your intended new partition
       size):

       pvresize --setphysicalvolumesize 40G /dev/sda1

RESTRICTIONS

       pvresize will refuse to  shrink  PhysicalVolume  if  it  has  allocated
       extents  after  where  its  new  end would be. In the future, it should
       relocate these elsewhere in the volume group  if  there  is  sufficient
       free space, like pvmove does.

       pvresize  won’t  currently  work  correctly on LVM1 volumes or PVs with
       extra metadata areas.
