PVRESIZE(8)                                                        PVRESIZE(8)

       pvresize -- resize a disk or partition in use by LVM2

       pvresize [--commandprofile ProfileName] [-d|--debug] [-h|--help] [-t|--test] [-v|--verbose] [--version] [--set-
       physicalvolumesize size] PhysicalVolume [PhysicalVolume...]

       pvresize resizes PhysicalVolume which may already be in a volume group and have active  logical  volumes  allo-
       cated on it.

       See lvm(8) for common options.

       --setphysicalvolumesize size
              Overrides  the  automatically-detected size of the PV.  Use with care, or prior to reducing the physical
              size of the device.

       Expand the PV on /dev/sda1 after enlarging the partition with fdisk:

       pvresize /dev/sda1

       Shrink the PV on /dev/sda1 prior to shrinking the partition with fdisk (ensure that the PV size is  appropriate
       for your intended new partition size):

       pvresize --setphysicalvolumesize 40G /dev/sda1

       pvresize  will refuse to shrink PhysicalVolume if it has allocated extents after where its new end would be. In
       the future, it should relocate these elsewhere in the volume group if there  is  sufficient  free  space,  like
       pvmove does.

       pvresize won't currently work correctly on LVM1 volumes.
