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

NAME
       lvrename - rename a logical volume

SYNOPSIS
       lvrename [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] [--version]

       {OldLogicalVolumePath NewLogicalVolume{Path|Name} |

       VolumeGroupName OldLogicalVolumeName NewLogicalVolumeName}

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

   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).

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

       -v, --verbose
	      Gives verbose progress messages.

EXAMPLE
       To rename lvold in volume group vg02 to lvnew:

	    lvrename /dev/vg02/lvold /dev/vg02/lvnew

       An alternate syntax to rename this logical volume is

	    lvrename vg02 lvold lvnew

DIAGNOSTICS
       lvrename returns an exit code of 0 for success or > 0 for error:

       1  invalid logical volume name
       2  error checking existence of volume group
       3  volume group inactive
       4  new logical volume special file already exists
       5  old logical volume doesn't exist
       6  volume group names are different
       7  new logical volume already exist
       9  error reading volume group
       10 error getting index of old logical volume
       11 error renaming logical volume in kernel
       12 error creating new logical volume in kernel
       13 error writing VGDA to physical volume(s)
       14 error creating device special for new logical volume
       15 invalid volume group name

       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 determins 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 steps are you able to backup with vgcfgrestore(8) from  the
	      changes you make to your volume groups.

       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.
