Extending Ext4 LVM Partition
First of all, I want to preface by saying I have had very bad luck with extending linux filesystems.
My situation is this: I had a 4TB Hardware RAID5 (3x2TB) in a Fedora Box. I use this array for backups, files, music, lots of things.
Recently it started to grow low on space, so I procured a 4th 2TB drive, and added it to the Hardware RAID. No issues with that. The RAID BIOS shows the new ~6TB Capacity.
What I am having trouble doing is making Linux extend it's partition to the ~6TB size.
The RAID is device SDC1.
SDC1 is a member of the volume group vg_3ware.
I'd appreciate some help. All of the tutorials and howtos I've found seem useful, but I always get stuck because i only see the original ~4TB size in Linux, and not the new size.
Did you check out this guide? http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_lvm
Thanks for the post, I appreciate the time.
I did consult the LVM guide. It's pretty comprehensive.
However, my partition table is using GPT because 6TB is too large for DOS.
Using the guide as a refernce, I was able to make the partition 6TB using parted.
Any advice is much appreciated.
Have you tried a reboot?
