I have a volume group with one physical volume and I can't remove this 
volume group :-(

vdr:~# vgdisplay LVM2

vdr:~# vgreduce LVM2 /dev/hdd1
vgreduce -- can't reduce volume group "LVM2" to zero physical volumes

vdr:~# vgremove LVM2
vgremove -- ERROR: can't remove active volume group "LVM2"

What I have to do?

Thanks in advance
