Re: [Linux-cluster] Expanding a LUN and a GFS2 filesystem



----- Original Message -----
| I have not extended the volume.  That was precisely my question.  I

|  As

| I've tried to increase the size of the volume with lvextend, but it's

| 
|     [root test03]# lvextend -L +2T /dev/sdb
|       Path required for Logical Volume "sdb"
|       Please provide a volume group name
|       Run `lvextend --help' for more information.
|     [root test03]# lvextend -L +2T  /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv
|     /dev/sdb
|       Extending logical volume gdcache_lv to 4.00 TB
|       Insufficient free space: 524288 extents needed, but only 3
|       available
|     [root test03]# lvextend -L +2000G
|      /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv /dev/sdb
|       Extending logical volume gdcache_lv to 3.95 TB
|       Insufficient free space: 512000 extents needed, but only 3
|       available
|     [root test03]# lvextend -L +1999G
|      /dev/mapper/gdcache_vg-gdcache_lv /dev/sdb
|       Extending logical volume gdcache_lv to 3.95 TB
|       Insufficient free space: 511744 extents needed, but only 3
|       available
| 
| I assume I need to expand the underlying PV or VG.  But how?

In order to make the volume bigger, you need to lvresize or lvextend it.
In order to do that, you need to make the volume group bigger. If your
volume group has no more space, you can add storage devices to it with
a command like this:

vgextend gdcache_vg /dev/sdt /dev/sdu /dev/sdv

(assuming you want to add those devices to the vg)

Once you've done that, you can extend the lv with lvresize or lvextend.

So something like:

vgextend gdcache_vg /dev/sdt /dev/sdu /dev/sdv
lvresize -L+1T /dev/gdcache_vg/gdcache_lv
mount -t gfs2 /dev/gdcache_vg/gdcache_lv /mnt/gfs2
gfs2_grow /mnt/gfs2
