Re: [linux-lvm] [Q] LVM snapshot volume extendable?



Thanks for the replay.
Well, just doing 'lvextend' does not work for me here.
Is there any other thing that I need to look for?

This is what I do for testing the extending the snapshot volume

The reasone that I did 'unmount' is to simulate the 'rebooting'. Because
after rebooting, I can not mount the extended snapshot anymore.

Thanks in advance
