vgreduce --- reduce a volume group


   vgreduce    [-a|--all]    [-A|--autobackup   {y|n}]   [--commandprofile
   ProfileName]     [-d|--debug]     [-h|-?|--help]      [--removemissing]
   [--reportformat      {basic|json}]      [-t|--test]      [-v|--verbose]
   VolumeGroupName [PhysicalVolumePath...]


   vgreduce allows you to remove one or more unused physical volumes  from
   a volume group.


   See lvm(8) for common options.

   -a, --all
          Removes  all empty physical volumes if none are given on command

          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
