Re: [linux-lvm] iSCSI lun resize



I've heard there is the plan to implement pvresize.
The sequence below works. However, it requires reboot.
--
vgcfgbackup
edit file
pvcreate --restorefile --uuid
vgcfgrestore
--
Not sure if new pvresize will do it on fly.
May be somebody from lvm development team can answer this.
Yes, I know that partitioning works.
However, there is a restriction on the number of partitions.

Thanks,
Igor.
