Re: [linux-lvm] help



your first error: don't made backup.

your second error: 

# From LVM how to

xfs
There is no way to shrink XFS file systems. 



If your are touch lvm2 you must know that about 250Gx1000 and 233x1024.

try use xfs_repair -n for see the reparis..

I use (but it is only a personal opinion, this is very dangerous)
(use again the first commands).
vgextend my_volume_group /dev/hdc1
lvextend -L250G /dev/HOME_VG/HOME_LV 
lvscan

In this point use xfs_repair -n
If you see good, use xfs_repair (pray)....
if you don't have luck try xfs_repair -d (after of this reboot) (read man
xfs_repair)
try to mount. (pray again).....

good luck
