14.3.2. Removing an LVM2 Logical Volume for Swap

To remove a swap volume group (assuming /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02 is the swap volume you want to remove):
  1. Disable swapping for the associated logical volume:
    swapoff -v /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02
  2. Remove the LVM2 logical volume of size 512 MB:
    lvremove /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02
  3. Remove the following entry from the /etc/fstab file:
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02 swap swap defaults 0 0
To test if the logical volume size was successfully removed, use cat /proc/swaps or free to inspect the swap space.
