I am trying to resize a Xen HVM disk. I have added the space to the vm as you can see here it is now 780GB.
--- Logical volume --- LV Name /dev/VM_VolGroup/vm104_img VG Name VM_VolGroup LV UUID qWx0fZ-R99f-pYSf-UpyV-c3bI-9ulk-Oi0iie LV Write Access read/write LV Status available # open 2 LV Size 780.00 GB Current LE 24960 Segments 2 Allocation inherit Read ahead sectors auto - currently set to 256 Block device 253:3
but I have not been able to resize the filesystem so I can allocate the space in the vm. I ended up following a tutorial that stated to fdisk vm104_img which I did but now the disk is showing as 837.5GB instead of the 780GB it is allocated. To fix this I believe I would just do fdisk again and give a smaller block size for vm104_img2 as when I originally did fdisk I just used the default.
fdisk -l /dev/VM_VolGroup/vm104_img
Disk /dev/VM_VolGroup/vm104_img: 837.5 GB, 837518622720 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 101822 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/VM_VolGroup/vm104_img1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux /dev/VM_VolGroup/vm104_img2 14 101822 817780792+ 83 Linux
I also noticed after I did the fdisk the img2 partion went from being System type Linux LVM to just Linux. I am not sure if this has something to do with it or not but this is where I sit now. I have tried many things and have not been able to resize the fs to make the new space available in the os. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
