lvrename



SYNOPSIS

       lvrename  [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help]
       [-v|--verbose] [--version]

       {OldLogicalVolumePath NewLogicalVolume{Path|Name} |

       VolumeGroupName OldLogicalVolumeName NewLogicalVolumeName}


DESCRIPTION

       lvrename renames an existing logical volume from  OldLogi­
       calVolume{Name|Path} to NewLogicalVolume{Name|Path}.

   OPTIONS
       -A, --autobackup {y|n}
              Controls  automatic backup of VG metadata after the
              change (see vgcfgbackup(8)).  Default is yes.

       -d, --debug
              Enables additional debugging  output  (if  compiled
              with DEBUG).

       -h, --help
              Print  a  usage message on standard output and exit
              successfully.

       -v, --verbose
              Gives verbose progress messages.


EXAMPLE

       To rename lvold in volume group vg02 to lvnew:

            lvrename /dev/vg02/lvold /dev/vg02/lvnew

       An alternate syntax to rename this logical volume is

            lvrename vg02 lvold lvnew


DIAGNOSTICS

       lvrename returns an exit code of 0 for success or > 0  for
       error:

       1  invalid logical volume name
       2  error checking existence of volume group
       3  volume group inactive
       4  new logical volume special file already exists
       5  old logical volume doesn't exist
       6  volume group names are different
       7  new logical volume already exist
       9  error reading volume group
       10 error getting index of old logical volume
       11 error renaming logical volume in kernel
              backup of VG metadata is turned off.

       LVM_VG_MAX_BACKUPS
              This variable determins the backup history depth of
              kept  VGDA  copy  files in /etc/lvmconf.  It can be
              set to a positive number between 0  and  999.   The
              higher  this  number is the more steps are you able
              to backup with vgcfgrestore(8) from the changes you
              make to your volume groups.

       LVM_VG_NAME
              The  default Volume Group Name to use. Setting this
              variable enables you to enter just the Logical Vol­
              ume Name rather than its complete path.
