DESCRIPTION
       pvchange allows you to change the allocation permissions of one or more
       physical volumes.

OPTIONS
       See lvm for common options.

       -a, --all
              If  PhysicalVolumePath  is not specified on the command line all
              physical volumes are searched for and used.

       --metadataignore  y|n
              Ignore or un-ignore metadata areas on this physical volume.   If
              metadata  areas  on  a physical volume are ignored, LVM will not
              not store metadata in the metadata areas present on this  Physi-
              cal Volume.

       -u, --uuid
              Generate new random UUID for specified physical volumes.

       -x, --allocatable y|n
              Enable  or disable allocation of physical extents on this physi-
              cal volume.

Example
       "pvchange -x n /dev/sdk1" disallows the allocation of physical  extents
       on this physical volume (possibly because of disk errors, or because it
       will be removed after freeing it.
