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

NAME
       lvrename - rename a logical volume

SYNOPSIS
       lvrename  [-A|--autobackup  {y|n}]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|--help]  [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [--version] [-f|--force] [--noudevsync] {OldLogi-
       calVolume{Name|Path} NewLogicalVolume{Name|Path} | VolumeGroupName OldLogicalVolumeName NewLogicalVolumeName }

DESCRIPTION
       lvrename renames an existing logical volume from OldLogicalVolume{Name|Path} to NewLogicalVolume{Name|Path}.

OPTIONS
       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --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 cre-
	      ates.

EXAMPLE
       To rename lvold in volume group vg02 to lvnew:

       lvrename /dev/vg02/lvold vg02/lvnew

       An alternate syntax to rename this logical volume is:

       lvrename vg02 lvold lvnew
