See lvm(8) for common options.
Removes all empty physical volumes if none are given on
Removes all missing physical volumes from the volume group, if
there are no logical volumes allocated on those. This resumes
normal operation of the volume group (new logical volumes may
again be created, changed and so on).
If this is not possible (there are logical volumes referencing
the missing physical volumes) and you cannot or do not want to
remove them manually, you can run this option with --force to
have vgreduce remove any partial LVs.
Any logical volumes and dependent snapshots that were partly
on the missing disks get removed completely. This includes
those parts that lie on disks that are still present.
If your logical volumes spanned several disks including the
ones that are lost, you might want to try to salvage data
first by activating your logical volumes with --partial as
described in lvm(8).
