Re: [linux-lvm] not enough free/allocatable physical extents to extend logical vo lume



I'm guessing you're trying to extend by too large a size. Use pvdisplay on /dev/sde1 and note the number of physical extents free. Then try passing that to e2fsadm with the '-l' flag instead of passing 33.91G with the '-L' flag. This is just a guess though. It's pretty hard to tell without all the commands you ran and the output they gave you.

but It is complaing about free physical extents when trying to extend during
the e2fsadm portion.
