Hi you all.
I am in need of assistan, I have an 400 GB HDD on my CentOS 6 Server
and I need to create an extra partition on that drive without loosing any data.
When I do df -l i get this.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 359G 1.4G 340G 1% /
tmpfs 1.5G 0 1.5G 0% /dev/shm
And when I do this fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 400.1 GB, 400088457216 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 48641 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000da106
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 47598 382322688 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 47598 48642 8387584 82 Linux swap / Solaris
What i'm intend to do is that I need 280GB extra and create LVM Group for that extra space.
This is my dedicated server and I have Solusvm on that server that is a slave server.
Can somone please tel me step by step how to do this.
To be really honest I am little bit scared to do this without a proper knowledge, I do have search the internet but I would rather have somone who know's this realy good.
So I really appreciate all the assistant.
