Force Removal of LVM Partition

Force Removal of LVM Partition

If you ever get into a situation where you cannot remove an lvm partition by using lvremove, use "dmsetup remove" instead:

dmsetup remove /dev/mylvm/test-disk

This will force the removal of the partition in a situation where you get an error message like:

Unable to deactivation open partition
