DESCRIPTION
       pvchange allows you to change the allocation permissions of one or more
       physical volumes.

       -a, --all
              If PhysicalVolumePath is not specified on the command  line  all
              physical volumes are searched for and used.

              Enable  or disable allocation of physical extents on this physi-
              cal volume.

Example
       "pvchange -x n /dev/sdk1" disallows the allocation of physical  extents
       on this physical volume (possibly because of disk errors, or because it
       will be removed after freeing it.
