vgrename



SYNOPSIS

       vgrename  [-A|--autobackup{y|n}]  [-d|--debug] [-h|--help]
       [-v|--verbose] { OldVolumeGroupPath  NewVolumeGroupPath  |
       OldVolumeName NewVolumeGroupName }


DESCRIPTION

       vgrename  renames  an  existing  (see vgcreate(8) ) volume
       group.

   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 information about vgrename's activi­
              ties.


Examples

       "vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group" renames existing
       volume group "vg02" to "my_volume_group".

       "vgrename vg02 my_volume_group" does the same.


DIAGNOSTICS

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

       1  new volume group directory for device special files already exists
       2  old volume group directory for device special files doesn't exist
       3  new volume group name is invalid
       4  old volume group name is invalid
       5  error checking existence of old volume group
       7  volume group names are identical
       8  new volume group already exists
       9  error reading VGDA
       10 error removing old VGDA from kernel
       11 error removing old VGDA from lvmtab
       12 error removing device special files for old volume group
       13 error creating device special files for new volume group
       14 error inserting new volume group name into lvmtab
       15 error backinp up VGDA
       16 error writing VGDA to lvmtab
       17 error renaming volume group in kernel
              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  changes  you  can
              restore using vgcfgrestore(8).
