I have RHAS4 (update 3) and the following is the LVM tool info.
[root at mysystem ~]# pvresize --version
LVM version: 2.02.01 (2005-11-23)
Library version: 1.02.02 (2006-01-04)
Driver version: 4.5.0
Now I have a RAID that had 5 x 300 GB on it and I recently added 3 more.
It is in the middle of migrating it data across 8 drives. Once this is
completed I am expected to run
to have the increased space recognized.
Now my question, may I hear from the folks who have used pvresize
before? i.e. successfully recognized the new space in how many minutes
The situation I am facing ... it is critical that pvresize does not mess
up the RAID or any other settings since we just cannot lose any more
time. So I just wanted to be extra sure that this can be done.
Please let me know,
P.S. : Please CC me on the reply since I am not subscribed on the list.
