I got a new dedicated server which have 500GB SSD holding the operating system and the other HDDs have the data. By default the
/boot partition is considered small I wanna extend it same applies to
EFI as shown below:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on devtmpfs 32G 0 32G 0% /dev tmpfs 32G 0 32G 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 32G 9.4M 32G 1% /run tmpfs 32G 0 32G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/mapper/cl-root 402G 8.1G 394G 3% / /dev/sda2 1014M 172M 843M 17% /boot /dev/sda1 200M 12M 189M 6% /boot/efi /dev/loop0 3.9G 8.4M 3.7G 1% /tmp tmpfs 6.3G 0 6.3G 0% /run/user/0
I'm trying to extend
EFI partitions using
resize2fs but the system isn't allowing me and I don't wanna create an
LVM for them. I have 20GB free with LVM which I'm trying to unallocate from LVM as a free space then I can use
fdisk to delete boot partitions and re-create them with the new space.
Any help how to unallocate the LVM free space and use them for fdisk? Or other solutions of expanding /boot.
