       vgrename - rename a volume group

       vgrename [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-h|-?|--help] [-t|--test]
       [-v|--verbose] OldVolumeGroup{Path|Name|UUID} NewVolumeGroup{Path|Name}

       vgrename renames an existing (see vgcreate(8) ) volume group from
       OldVolumeGroup{Name|Path|UUID} to NewVolumeGroup{Name|Path}.

       See lvm for common options.

       "vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group" renames existing volume group
       "vg02" to "my_volume_group".

       "vgrename vg02 my_volume_group" does the same.

       "vgrename Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 VolGroup00_tmp"
       changes the name of the Volume Group with UUID Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-
       o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 to "VolGroup00_tmp".

       All the Volume Groups visible to a system need to have different names.
       Otherwise many LVM2 commands will refuse to run or give warning

       This situation could arise when disks are moved between machines.  If a
       disk is connected and it contains a Volume Group with the same name as
       the Volume Group containing your root filesystem the machine might not
       even boot correctly.  However, the two Volume Groups should have
       different UUIDs (unless the disk was cloned) so you can rename one of
       the conflicting Volume Groups with vgrename.
