NAME
       lvremove - remove a logical volume

SYNOPSIS
       lvremove [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] Log-
       icalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...]

DESCRIPTION
       lvremove allows you to remove one or more inactive logical volumes.

   OPTIONS
       -A, --autobackup y/n
	      Controls automatic backup of VG metadata after the change ( see  vgcfgbackup(8)  ).
	      Default is yes.

       -d, --debug
	      Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG).

       -f, --force
	      Force remove without confirmation.

       -h, --help
	      Print a usage message on standard output and exit successfully.

       -v, --verbose
	      Gives verbose runtime information about lvremove's activities.

Example
       "lvremove -f /dev/vg00/lvol1" removes that inactive logical volume unconditionally.

DIAGNOSTICS
       lvremove returns an exit code of 0 for success and > 0 for error:

       1  no logical volume name on command line
       2  invalid logical volume name
       3  error checking existence of volume group
       4  inactive volume group
       5  error getting VGDA from kernel
       6  error getting status of logical volume from kernel
       7  open logical volume cannot be removed
       8  error reading VGDA
       9  error removing logical volume from VGDA
       10 error removing logical volume from kernel
       11 error writing VGDA to physical volume(s)

       95 driver/module not in kernel
       96 invalid I/O protocol version
       97 error locking logical volume manager
       98 invalid lvmtab (run vgscan(8))
       99 invalid command line

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       LVM_AUTOBACKUP
	      If  this variable is set to "no" then the automatic backup of VG metadata is turned
	      off.

       LVM_VG_MAX_BACKUPS
	      This variable determines the backup history  depth  of  kept  VGDA  copy	files  in
	      /etc/lvmconf.  It  can  be  set to a positive number between 0 and 999.  The higher
	      this number is, the more changes you can restore using vgcfgrestore(8).

       LVM_VG_NAME
	      The default Volume Group Name to use. Setting this variable enables  you	to  enter
	      just the Logical Volume Name rather than its complete path.
