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

NAME
       vgmknodes - recreate volume group directory and logical volume special files

SYNOPSIS
       vgmknodes [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [--refresh] [-v|--verbose] [[VolumeGroupName | LogicalVolumePath]...]

DESCRIPTION
       Checks the LVM2 special files in /dev that are needed for active logical volumes and creates any missing ones and removes unused ones.

OPTIONS
       --refresh
	      If  any  logical	volume	in the volume group is active, reload its metadata.  This is not necessary in normal operation, but may be
	      useful if something has gone wrong or if you're doing clustering manually without a clustered lock manager.

       See lvm for common options.

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

NAME
lvremove - remove a logical volume SYNOPSIS
lvremove [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|-?|--help] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] LogicalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...] DESCRIPTION
lvremove removes one or more logical volumes. Confirmation will be requested before deactivating any active logical volume prior to removal. Logical volumes cannot be deactivated or removed while they are open (e.g. if they contain a mounted filesystem). Removing an origin logical volume will also remove all dependent snapshots. If the logical volume is clustered then it must be deactivated on all nodes in the cluster before it can be removed. A single lvchange com- mand issued from one node can do this. OPTIONS
See lvm(8) for common options. -f, --force Remove active logical volumes without confirmation. EXAMPLES
Remove the active logical volume lvol1 in volume group vg00 without asking for confirmation: lvremove -f vg00/lvol1 Remove all logical volumes in volume group vg00: lvremove vg00 SEE ALSO
