       lvremove - remove a logical volume


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

              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
