       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 messages.

              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.
