Re: Increase size of LUN

so from pvdisplay and vgdispaly everything looks good, the logical volume looks good as well

/dev/emc5_vg1/emc5_lv1   [  348.99 GB]

something does look right from the file system perspective. Have you tried to unmount and re-mount that file system ?

No I did not, but after the increasing of the LUN I have rebooted the server

[imail ~]$ uptime

14:11:09 up 1 day, 23:44,  3 users,  load average: 1.20, 0.52, 0.29

Re: Increase size of LUN

yes,,,,, but as I told you before the resize2fs went too long so I killed the process as stated in my old post

<...During the procedure of number 6, the system went in loop, i was able to login but anot able to get inside that directory the system was busy increasing the LUN afte a while of 15min, the file system  was increasing but to that point and stopped ... I did all the above online and without mounting the filesystem /opt/zimbra.

After the reboot, system came back online with the following size...>

So do you think I should do the resize2fs again?

you can try, create a snapshot or clone of the two LUNs so you can quickly recover in case something goes wrong.

#resize2fs /dev/emc5_vg1/emc5_lv1

I will try the above command by end of this week, before that I ll do the snap shot.

I will keep you updated.

Thanks for your help

Re: Increase size of LUN

I want to do this exact thing, but ON THE FLY, with Linux up and applications running; i.e. - extend the PV by 50 GB on the Array and then extend PVs, LVs, File systems on RHEL.   I think it should be something like:

# pvscan

# pvresize

# lvextend (or lvresize)

# fsadm ?

Does anybody know how to do this?
