thanks...urk....ok.. long way around...(want to move a house from one
city to another,
but first must merge cities, then logical-house-move from one side of
to the other; then un-annex the old-part of the city)...;-/
Um... trying the merge, I get:
> sudo vgmerge -v Data HnS
Checking for volume group "Data"
Checking for volume group "HnS"
Logical volumes in "HnS" must be inactive
Media_Back HnS -wi-a---- 8.00t
Sys HnS -wc-a---- 96.00g
Sysboot HnS -wc-a---- 4.00g
Sysvar HnS -wc-a---- 28.00g
Win HnS -wi-a---- 1.00t
oHome HnS -wi-a---- 1.00t
I guess they are active. But if they aren't open, what are they
doing? And how do I make them inactive (I have a feeling this is
at the root of why lvremove never works without "-f" as well).
