NAME

vgremove - remove a volume group  

SYNOPSIS

vgremove [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|-?|--help] [--noudevsync] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] VolumeGroupName [VolumeGroupName...]  

DESCRIPTION

vgremove allows you to remove one or more volume groups. If one or more physical volumes in the volume group are lost, consider vgreduce --removemissing to make the volume group metadata consistent again.

If there are logical volumes that exist in the volume group, a prompt will be given to confirm removal. You can override the prompt with -f.  

OPTIONS

See lvm for common options.
-f, --force
Force the removal of any logical volumes on the volume group without confirmation.
--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.
