NAME

vgrename - rename a volume group  

SYNOPSIS

vgrename [-A|--autobackup{y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] { OldVolumeGroupPath NewVolumeGroupPath | OldVolumeName NewVolumeGroupName }  

DESCRIPTION

vgrename renames an existing (see vgcreate(8) ) volume group.  

OPTIONS

-A, --autobackup y/n
Controls automatic backup of VG metadata after the change ( see vgcfgbackup(8) ). Default is yes.
-d, --debug
Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG).
-h, --help
Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.
-v, --verbose
Gives verbose information about vgrename's activities.
 

Examples

"vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group" renames existing volume group "vg02" to "my_volume_group".
"vgrename vg02 my_volume_group" does the same.

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).
