NAME
       pvchange - change attributes of a physical volume

SYNOPSIS
       pvchange [--addtag Tag] [-A|--autobackup y|n] [-d|--debug] [--deltag
       Tag] [-h|-?|--help] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [-a|--all]
       [-x|--allocatable y|n] [-u|--uuid] [PhysicalVolumePath...]

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

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

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

       -u, --uuid
              Generate new random UUID for specified physical volumes.

       -x, --allocatable y|n
              Enable or disable allocation of physical extents on this
              physical 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.
