LVREMOVE(8)                          System Manager's Manual                          LVREMOVE(8)

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 deac‐
       tivating any active logical volume prior to removal.  Logical volumes  cannot  be  deacti‐
       vated  or removed while they are open (e.g. if they contain a mounted filesystem).  Remov‐
       ing 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 confirma‐
       tion:

       lvremove -f vg00/lvol1

       Remove all logical volumes in volume group vg00:

       lvremove vg00
