We're using ext3 right now for our EBS file systems and I was wondering if there would be any problems with the following scenario for expanding the size.
- Create EBS initial size 2GB (ebs1)
- Snapshot EBS (s1)
- Create 10GB EBS (ebs2) from snapshot (s1)
Will this corrupt the file system? Will the ext3 file system automatically handle this situation? Likewise, will decreasing the size, using the same method, cause any problems (assuming the space is still sufficient for the data)?
I have successfully done this in the EC2 environment but since I'm currently using very little data I'm not sure if I've caused any problems.
Would running fsck find issues like this?
