    Hi,

    I'm attempting to expand /dev/sda9 by the free space that has been added to the attached SAN.

    I've listed some output below.

    I followed the step to expand the last partition in the HowToForge Link, however it didn't expand, when I executed 'resize2fs /dev/sda9'. :-(

    The document is based on expanding the root partition. What should I have done to attached the free space to partition 9?

    Thank you in advance.
    Craig.

    Hi,

    I still have issues with expansion.

    Can someone let me know if I've missed something.

    Thank you
    Craig.
