Re: [linux-lvm] Resizing an ext3 file system after extending a logical volume group



Looking at it your planned steps are fine except you don't need to
worry about turning the journal off and then on afterwards. I've done
ext3 resizing operations on LVM many times over the last few years and
*never* experienced issues with the journal.

Remember the journal is there to keep data corruption (and fsck time)
at a minimum if the file system goes down uncleanly. AFAIK, unmounting
an ext3 file system forces the journal to commit itself to disk, which
means the journal is empty during the resize operation anyways.
