Thanks for the quick response. So to recap, for a 144gb drive (/dev/sda1) :

1. fdisk /dev/sda1 type 8e
2. pvcreate /dev/sda1
3. vgextend existing_group_name /dev/sda1
4. lvextend -L+144G /dev/VolGroup00/existing_group_name

Does that look correct?

Thanks so much once again,


Hi Kevin,

I've been meaning to add this process to my wiki for a while now. This is as good a time as any, so take a gander here:


Note that it's a copy-pasted from some of my other docs, so some of it will reference non-existing things, but the steps should all be there.
