I'm having space issues on one server; the disk layout is setup so root device is on a volume group:
#vgscan Found volume group "VolGroup00" using metadata type lvm2 #pvscan PV /dev/xvdb1 VG lvm lvm2 [322.26 GB / 107.26 GB free] PV /dev/xvda2 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [29.19 GB / 0 free] Total: 2 [351.45 GB] / in use: 2 [351.45 GB] / in no VG: 0 [0 ] #lvscan ACTIVE '/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00' [27.16 GB] inherit (my root) ACTIVE '/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01' [2.03 GB] inherit (swap)
As you see, no space left on LogVol01. I'm looking for a 'quick' way to add more space I can add new physical device but don't know how to tell LVM to add this to the group.
Do I need to restart and boot livecd in order to do this operation ?
(This server is running in production and i really need to figure out what to do)
thank you for your answers,
