DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

See lvm for common options.
--noudevsync
  Disable udev synchronisation. The process will not wait for notification from udev. It will continue irrespective of any possible udev processing in the background. You should only use this if udev is not running or has rules that ignore the devices LVM2 creates.

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
