NAME

       lvremove — remove a logical volume

SYNOPSIS

       lvremove   [-A|--autobackup   {y|n}]   [--commandprofile   ProfileName]
       [-d|--debug]   [-h|--help]    [-S|--select    Selection]    [-t|--test]
       [-v|--verbose]       [--version]       [-f|--force]      [--noudevsync]
       [LogicalVolume{Name|Path}...]

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
       origin 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
       command issued from one node can do this.

OPTIONS

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       -f, --force
              Remove active logical volumes without confirmation.   Tool  will
              try  to deactivate unused volume.  To proceed with damaged pools
              use -ff

       --noudevsync
              Disable udev synchronisation. The  process  will  not  wait  for
              notification  from  udev.   It will continue irrespective of any
              possible udev processing in the background.  You should only use
              this if udev is not running or has rules that ignore the devices
              LVM2 creates.

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
