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

       lvremove - remove a logical volume

       lvremove [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|-?|--help]
       [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] LogicalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...]

       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
       command issued from one node can do this.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       -f, --force
              Remove active logical volumes without confirmation.

       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
