NAME
       pvchange - change attributes of a physical volume

SYNOPSIS
       pvchange  [--addtag  Tag]  [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [--deltag Tag] [--metadataignore y|n] [-h|-?|--help] [-t|--test]
       [-v|--verbose] [-a|--all] [-x|--allocatable y|n] [-u|--uuid] [PhysicalVolumePath...]

DESCRIPTION
       pvchange allows you to change the allocation permissions of one or more physical volumes.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       -a, --all
	      If PhysicalVolumePath is not specified on the command line all physical volumes are searched for and used.

       --metadataignore  y|n
	      Ignore or un-ignore metadata areas on this physical volume.  If metadata areas on a physical volume are ignored, LVM  will  not  not
	      store metadata in the metadata areas present on this Physical Volume.

       -u, --uuid
	      Generate new random UUID for specified physical volumes.

       -x, --allocatable y|n
	      Enable or disable allocation of physical extents on this physical volume.

Example
       "pvchange -x n /dev/sdk1" disallows the allocation of physical extents on this physical volume (possibly because of disk errors, or because
       it will be removed after freeing it.
