SYNOPSIS         top

       vgremove [--commandprofile ProfileName] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force]

DESCRIPTION         top

       vgremove allows you to remove one or more volume groups.  If one or
       more physical volumes in the volume group are lost, consider vgreduce
       --removemissing to make the volume group metadata consistent again.

       If there are logical volumes that exist in the volume group, a prompt
       will be given to confirm removal.  You can override the prompt with

OPTIONS         top

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       -f, --force
              Force the removal of any logical volumes on the volume group
              without confirmation.  To remove also damaged pool volumes use

              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.
