PVRESIZE(8)                                    System Manager's Manual                                    PVRESIZE(8)

       pvresize — resize a disk or partition in use by LVM2

       pvresize  [--commandprofile  ProfileName]  [-d|--debug]  [-h|--help]  [-t|--test]  [-v|--verbose]  [--version]
       [--reportformat {basic|json}] [--setphysicalvolumesize 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.
