Re: [Linux-cluster] What is the proper way to grow LVM/GFS volumes

I think you need:

lvextend  -l+100%FREE  /dev/nuvg4/nulv4

Without the +, you were trying to set the logical volume size to the size of your free space, not adding the free space to the size.

I tried a few times to grow LVM by adding additional PV to VG, and then
executing 'lvextend' command. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but I get
the message that there is error locking on one of the nodes, and then the
GFS hangs.

Here are some of the details:

[root fenmrdev03 ~]# vgs

 /dev/sdc          nuvg4      lvm2 a-    5.00G    0
 /dev/sdd          nuvg4      lvm2 a-    5.00G 5.00G

Command I tried:
[root fenmrdev03 ~]# lvextend  -l100%FREE  /dev/nuvg4/nulv4
