vgremove(8) [bsd man page]

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

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  cre-
	      ates.
