   pvchange allows you to change the allocation permissions of one or more
   physical volumes.


   See lvm(8) for common options.

   -a, --all
          If PhysicalVolumePath is not specified on the command  line  all
          physical volumes are searched for and used.

   --metadataignore {y|n}
          Ignore  or un-ignore metadata areas on this physical volume.  If
          metadata areas on a physical volume are ignored,  LVM  will  not
          not  store  metadata  in  the  metadata  areas  present  on this
          Physical Volume.

   -u, --uuid
          Generate new random UUID for specified physical volumes.

   -x, --allocatable {y|n}
          Enable  or  disable  allocation  of  physical  extents  on  this
          physical volume.


   Disallows  the  allocation  of physical extents on this physical volume
   (possibly because of disk errors, or because it will be  removed  after
   freeing it:

   pvchange -x n /dev/sdk1
