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

NAME
       vgrename — rename a volume group

SYNOPSIS
       vgrename    [-A|--autobackup    {y|n}]    [--commandprofile    ProfileName]   [-d|--debug]
       [-h|-?|--help]   [-t|--test]   [-v|--verbose]    OldVolumeGroup{Path|Name|UUID}    NewVol‐
       umeGroup{Path|Name}

DESCRIPTION
       vgrename   renames   an   existing   (see   vgcreate(8))   volume   group   from   OldVol‐
       umeGroup{Name|Path|UUID} to NewVolumeGroup{Name|Path}.

       All the Volume Groups visible to a system need to have different  names.   Otherwise  many
       LVM2 commands will refuse to run or give warning messages.

       This  situation could arise when disks are moved between machines.  If a disk is connected
       and it contains a Volume Group with the same name as the Volume Group containing your root
       filesystem  the  machine  might  not  even boot correctly.  However, the two Volume Groups
       should have different UUIDs (unless the disk was cloned) so you can rename one of the con‐
       flicting Volume Groups with vgrename.

OPTIONS
       See lvm(8) for common options.

Examples
       Renames existing volume group vg02 to my_volume_group:

       vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group

       or

       vgrename vg02 my_volume_group

       Changes the name of the Volume Group with UUID
       Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 to VolGroup00_tmp:

       vgrename Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 VolGroup00_tmp
