SYNOPSIS

       pvchange  [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help]
       [-v|--verbose] [-a|--all] [-x|--allocation {y|n}]  [Physi­
       calVolumePath...]


DESCRIPTION

       pvchange  allows  you to change the allocation permissions
       of one or more physical volumes.

   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 runtime information about pvchange's
              activities.

       -a, --all
              If PhysicalVolumePath is not specified on the  com­
              mand line all physical volumes are searched for and
              used.

       -x, --allocation y/n
              Enable or disable allocation of physical extents on
              this physical volume.


Example

       "pvchange  -x  n  /dev/sdk1"  disallows  the allocation of
       physical extents on this physical volume (possibly because
       of  disk errors, or because it will be removed after free­
       ing it.


DIAGNOSTICS

       pvchange returns an exit code of 0 for success and > 0 for
       error:

       1  no physical volume name(s) on command line
       2  no physical volume names found
       3  error changing physical volume in kernel
       4  error writing physical volume

       95 driver/module not in kernel
