I am happy to report that rename by UUID does work (although,
from the above links, you would think it did not):
:; vgrename aaaaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-eeee-ffff-gggggg VolGroupForeign
Volume group "VolGroup00" successfully renamed to "VolGroupForeign"
Although it seems to be a best practice, naming volume groups
in a unique way isn't done by default on CentOS -- and I
inherited a bunch of CentOS Xen instances on a CentOS Dom0...
Thanks for you help everyone,
