lvremove

remove a logical volume

lvremove [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [--version] [-f|--force] [--noudevsync] LogicalVolume{Name|Path} [LogicalVolume{Name|Path}...]

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.

--noudevsync

Disable udev synchronisation. The process will not wait for notification from udev. It will continue irrespective of any possible udev processing in the background. You should only use this if udev is not running or has rules that ignore the devices LVM2 creates.

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
