Expand Hard Disk Size

1. Display all the hard disk size. Available space is zero. (sigh!)

2. Use the command fdisk to examine the physical hard disk.

3. Examine the partition table.

4. Create a new partition.

5. Quit and reboot the system.

6. Use partprobe to load the table.

7. Create a new physical volume.

 

8. Add new physical volume to the volume group.

 

9. Extend the logical volume to include the physical volume we just added to the group.

 

10. Extend the logical volume to include all free extents.

 

11. Use resize2fs to extend our ext3 filesystem online.

 

12. Use df again to verify.

 

13. Yeah! (poolparty)
