Re: [linux-lvm] cannot extend lv



I understand, I went through the same exercise two months ago.  I
borrowed a disk from a friend, moved all of the data to it, and rebuilt
my whole VG setup.  It was a major pain in the neck.

But it's the only way. This is not unique to Sistina's implementation. Once the filesystem has been striped at a low level (vs. lvextending it to alternate disks at the extent level) there isn't any good way to move the sripes around.

I'd suggest picking up a backup device, though, instead
of a diskdrive. The last thing you need is for a borrowed
drive to croak while you're re-arranging the PV's.
