lvlnboot - any way to remove a dump area

My boot disk shows lvol2 (primary swap) as dump in addition to lv_dump1 & lv_dump2 which we created. I don't see an option in the lvlnboot command to remove a dump area, is there any way to remove lvol2 as the dump area. I still want to retain lvol2 for swap.

Check the lvrmboot command. First you need to reove it using lvrmboot and then use new dump lvols. Define new dump lvols with lvlnboot

yup, lvrmboot did it. I was gonna complain that the lvrmboot command wasn't listed at the bottom of the "man lvlnboot" but it was and my tired eyes had skipped over it.
