lvremove - remove a logical volume  


lvremove [-A|--autobackup {y|n}] [-d|--debug] [-f|--force] [-h|--help] [-v|--verbose] LogicalVolumePath [LogicalVolumePath...]  


lvremove allows you to remove one or more inactive logical volumes.  


-A, --autobackup y/n
Controls automatic backup of VG metadata after the change ( see vgcfgbackup(8) ). Default is yes.
-d, --debug
Enables additional debugging output (if compiled with DEBUG).
-f, --force
Force remove without confirmation.
-h, --help

"lvremove -f /dev/vg00/lvol1" removes that inactive logical volume unconditionally.
