 pvremove(1M)                                                   pvremove(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      pvremove - remove LVM data structure from a physical volume

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /sbin/pvremove pv_path

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The pvremove command clears the LVM data structure on a disk, so that
      it is no longer an LVM physical volume.  The device may then be used
      by the file system or by other Volume Manager.

      The operation is denied if pv_path is assigned to a volume group.  The
      pvremove command only clears the LVM data structure on a disk if the
      disk does not belong to a volume group.  This avoids accidentally
      removing a valid physical volume under a volume group.  If the
      physical volume to be removed belongs to a volume group, use the
      vgremove command to first remove the volume group associated with the
      physical volume.

    Arguments    [Toc]    [Back]
      pvremove recognizes the following arguments:

           pv_path        The character (raw) device path name of a physical

    Environment Variables
      LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LANG is not specified or is null, it defaults to "C" (see lang(5)).

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, all
      internationalization variables default to "C" (see environ(5)).

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      Remove LVM data structure on the physical volume /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0:

           pvremove /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0
