    Command:

    vgrename

    
    
    

    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 Old-
           VolumeGroup{Name|Path|UUID} to NewVolumeGroup{Name|Path}.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           See lvm for common options.
    
    
    

    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.
    
           "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.
