[linux-lvm] lvextend problem



Greetings,

 

I would greatly appreciate if anyone can help me with the issue I am having with vgextend.

I am trying to extend my LV but getting error about insufficient extents, while there are enough free PEs in the VG.

 

Here is setup information:

# lvm version

  LVM version:     2.02.13 (2006-10-27)

  Library version: 1.02.12 (2006-10-13)

  Driver version:  4.7.0

# lvscan

  ACTIVE            '/dev/system/root' [5.00 GB] inherit

  ACTIVE            '/dev/system/swap' [700.00 MB] inherit

 

# mount

/dev/mapper/system-root on / type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)

proc on /proc type proc (rw)

sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)

debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)

udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)

devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)

/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)

/dev/mapper/system-home on /home type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)

/dev/mapper/data-data1 on /mnt/data1 type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)

/dev/mapper/data-data2 on /mnt/data2 type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)

/dev/mapper/data-data3 on /mnt/data3 type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)

.host:/ on /mnt/hgfs type vmhgfs (rw,ttl=5)

securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)

none on /proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint type vmblock (rw)

 

So “system” VG uses /dev/sda2 with 708M free and /dev/sdc1 with 2.99G free.

This is confirmed by:

 

#pvdisplay /dev/sda2

  --- Physical volume ---

  PV Name               /dev/sda2

  VG Name               system

  PV Size               6.50 GB / not usable 3.76 MB

  Allocatable           yes

  PE Size (KByte)       4096

  Total PE              1664

  Free PE               177

  Allocated PE          1487

  PV UUID               fYVfh6-wMQ2-X2Zv-AJ6R-2CgK-c97o-KfPoLz

 

# pvdisplay /dev/sdc1

  --- Physical volume ---

  PV Name               /dev/sdc1

  VG Name               system

  PV Size               3.00 GB / not usable 3.07 MB

  Allocatable           yes

  PE Size (KByte)       4096

  Total PE              766

  Free PE               766

  Allocated PE          0

  PV UUID               XUUjaG-okI9-AQbG-JLwa-oqBO-rkse-pTyg53

 

So there is a total of free 943 PE (4M each) in “system” VG.

 

I want to extend /dev/system/root:

 

# lvextend -l+2 /dev/system/root /dev/sdc1

  Extending logical volume root to 5.01 GB

  Insufficient free space: 1282 extents needed, but only 766 available

 

Or

 

# lvextend -l+2 /dev/system/root

  Extending logical volume root to 5.01 GB

  Insufficient free space: 1282 extents needed, but only 943 available

 

Same if I specify actual size (in MB or GB) instead if number of PEs.

 

Looks like it tries to reallocate the whole LV to the size needed instead of just adding the needed size from VG free space

to the already existing LV.

 

What I am not understanding or missing here?

 

 

Respectfully,
