NAME lvremove - remove a logical volume
SYNOPSIS lvremove [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|-?|--help] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] LogicalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...]
removes one or more logical volumes. Confirmation will be requested before deactivating any active logical volume prior to removal. Logical volumes cannot be deactivated or removed while they are open (e.g. if they contain a mounted filesystem). Removing an origin logical volume will also remove all dependent snapshots.
If the logical volume is clustered then it must be deactivated on all nodes in the cluster before it can be removed. A single lvchange command issued from one node can do this.
(8) for common options.
