NAME

vgrename – rename a volume group
 

SYNOPSIS

vgrename

[-A|--autobackup

{y|n}]

[-d|--debug]

[-h|-?|--help]

[-t|--test]

[-v|--verbose]

OldVolumeGroup{Path|Name|UUID}

NewVolumeGroup{Path|Name}

 

DESCRIPTION

vgrename renames an existing (see
vgcreate(8))

volume group from
OldVolumeGroup{Name|Path|UUID}

to
NewVolumeGroup{Name|Path}.


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.
 

OPTIONS

See lvm(8) for common options.
 

Examples

Renames existing volume group vg02 to my_volume_group:


vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group


or


vgrename vg02 my_volume_group


Changes the name of the Volume Group with UUID

Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 to VolGroup00_tmp:


vgrename Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 VolGroup00_tmp
