I created an LV as follows:

mklv -y lpar_lv rootvg 40G

Open in new window

How do I delete an lv
Question by:Los Angeles1
    LVL 13

    Assisted Solution

    Does this command work for you?
    rmlv lpar_lv
    LVL 68

    Accepted Solution

    rmlv lpar_lv

    Answer "yes" to this message.

    Warning, all data contained on logical volume fslv00 will be destroyed.
    rmlv: Do you wish to continue? y(es) n(o)?

    The LV must be closed (i.e. not defined as a vdev to a running LPAR)

    See your other Q on unassigning an LV on how to delete a vdev and the underlying LV in one go.
