Re: How to increase existing size 350GB to 500GB in



Dunno, guys.

/dev/mapper/mpath4p1  345G  326G  1.5G 100% /u01

That looks like a bare/non-LVM device to me.  I've never known anyone to
partition a logical volume.

Azahary, if you could clear that up it would be beneficial.  If this is a
bare device partition, though, I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest
that the safest method of increasing the size of this volume will be to
request a storage volume of the desired size and schedule a maintenance
window to move your data.

You might also bring this up with your storage team.  There might be an
accepted procedure within your organization for expanding SAN volumes on
the fly.  You're still stuck with having to manipulate the partition table
on your volume such that Linux can "see" the volume at its complete size.

Good luck.

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I
thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible
things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I
take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.
