Re: HDISK Questions
From what I've been reading, I can increase the size of the disk in the VM, and then run a rescan of the disk using:
echo 1 > /sys/block/sdx/device/rescan
I'd then have to unmount the file system, run fdisk on it, run resize2fs on it and then remount the file system.
Is there any way I can do this without taking the file system offline?
I have a request to increase the space of an existing file system on a Linux partition and then to create four more file systems. I guess I could extend the one via fdisk and then add a new disk in, make it LVM managed and then do what I know how to do.
I guess I'm just looking for thoughts by people who managed file systems and disks from the 90's, because, even though this is a virtual server, the people who set this up didn't know anything about Linux or LVM.
