       vgrename - rename a volume group

       vgrename  [-A|--autobackup{y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] { OldVolumeGroup-
       Path NewVolumeGroupPath | OldVolumeName NewVolumeGroupName }

       vgrename renames an existing (see vgcreate(8) ) volume group.

       -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 information about vgrename's activities.

       "vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group" renames existing volume group "vg02" to "my_vol-

       "vgrename vg02 my_volume_group" does the same.

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

       1  new volume group directory for device special files already exists
       2  old volume group directory for device special files doesn't exist
       3  new volume group name is invalid
       4  old volume group name is invalid
       5  error checking existence of old volume group
       7  volume group names are identical
       8  new volume group already exists
       9  error reading VGDA
       10 error removing old VGDA from kernel
       11 error removing old VGDA from lvmtab
       12 error removing device special files for old volume group
       13 error creating device special files for new volume group
       14 error inserting new volume group name into lvmtab
       15 error backinp up VGDA
       16 error writing VGDA to lvmtab
       17 error renaming volume group in kernel

       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

	      If this variable is set to "no" then the automatic backup of VG metadata is  turned

	      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).
