How do I unassign an lv

    LVL 13

    Assisted Solution

    Does this command work for you?
    rmlv lpar_lv
    LVL 68

    Accepted Solution

    Under IOSCLI:

    rmvdev -vdev lpar_lv

    If you add "-rmlv" the underlying LV will be deleted as well.
    I think this is also a possible answer to your other Q on how to delete an LV:

    rmvdev -vdev lpar_lv -rmlv
