DESCRIPTION

lvremove allows you to remove one or more inactive logical volumes.  

OPTIONS

Example

DIAGNOSTICS

1  no logical volume name on command line
2  invalid logical volume name
3  error checking existence of volume group
4  inactive volume group
5  error getting VGDA from kernel
6  error getting status of logical volume from kernel
7  open logical volume cannot be removed

97 error locking logical volume manager

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

LVM_AUTOBACKUP
If this variable is set to "no" then the automatic backup of VG metadata is turned off.
LVM_VG_MAX_BACKUPS
This variable determines the backup history depth of kept VGDA copy files in /etc/lvmconf. It can be set to a positive number between 0 and 999. The higher this number is, the more changes you can restore using vgcfgrestore(8).
LVM_VG_NAME
The default Volume Group Name to use. Setting this variable enables you to enter just the Logical Volume Name rather than its complete path.
