       vgrename - rename a volume group

       vgrename	   [-A|--autobackup    {y|n}]	 [-d|--debug]	[-h|-?|--help]
       [-t|--test]   [-v|--verbose]   OldVolumeGroup{Path|Name|UUID}   NewVol‐

       vgrename	 renames  an existing (see vgcreate(8)) volume group from Old‐
       VolumeGroup{Name|Path|UUID} to NewVolumeGroup{Name|Path}.

       All the Volume Groups visible to a system need to have different names.
       Otherwise  many	LVM2  commands will refuse to run or give warning mes‐

       This situation could arise when disks are moved between machines.  If a
       disk  is connected and it contains a Volume Group with the same name as
       the Volume Group containing your root filesystem the machine might  not
       even  boot  correctly.  However, the two Volume Groups should have dif‐
       ferent UUIDs (unless the disk was cloned) so you can rename one of  the
       conflicting Volume Groups with vgrename.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       Renames existing volume group vg02 to my_volume_group:

       vgrename /dev/vg02 /dev/my_volume_group


       vgrename vg02 my_volume_group

       Changes the name of the Volume Group with UUID
       Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 to VolGroup00_tmp:

       vgrename Zvlifi-Ep3t-e0Ng-U42h-o0ye-KHu1-nl7Ns4 VolGroup00_tmp
