Re: [linux-lvm] Question about hardware LVM



i guess u can get that information from manual.

the hardware probably can grow the size dynamically. but it might still
depends on host to grow the fs.

linux seems can not handle the read_capacity data changed msg from san.
so probably u will need to grow it, reconnect from linux, find the
changed size, then run fs tools to grow it.

still, check manual is the way to go.
