lvremove --- remove a logical volume


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


   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.

   If the configuration setting metadata/record_lvs_history is enabled and
   the  logical volume being removed forms part of the history of at least
   one  logical  volume  that  is  still   present   then   a   simplified
   representation  of  the logical volume will be retained.  This includes
   the time of removal (lv_time_removed reporting  field),  creation  time
   (lv_time),  name (lv_name), LV uuid (lv_uuid) and VG name (vg_name) and
   allows you to see the ancestry chain  of  thin  snapshot  volumes  even
   after  some  intermediate logical volumes have been removed.  The names
   of such historical logical volumes acquire a hyphen as a  prefix  (e.g.
   '-lvol1')  and cannot be reactivated.  Use lvremove a second time, with
   the  hyphen,  to  remove  the  record  of  the  former  logical  volume


   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

          Disable  the  recording  of history of logical volumes which are
          being removed.  (This has no  effect  unless  the  configuration
          setting metadata/record_lvs_history is enabled.)

          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.


   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
