Re: [linux-lvm] How do I pvresize?



No, I used the raw device sda. I didn't bother partitioning it, as I
knew I could expand the raid, and grow the PV just like I did back
with LVM-1.

Glen,


If you do a pvscan do you get 'PV "/dev/sda1" etc' or 'PV "/dev/sda" etc'
If you get the former could you not create /dev/sda2 with the extra 250GB and add that to the LV as a separate PV
I'm assuming that you can have different partitions on the same array (actual disk) defined as separate PVs
I may be completely off track here, please feel free to correct.....

Chris.

I have already expanded the RAID slice by 250Gb, and now have a /dev/sda which is 250Gb larger than it was before.

I now cannot remove that disk without either rebuilding the RAID
on the hot spare(back to square one) or destroying the RAID.

Please, can someone help me?
