We have a CentOS 8 server that has recently had a
lvm fill up on available space. This was not our monitoring system since it watches the disk space and not the volume space. Regardless I am having trouble extending the space on the logical volume. Currently we have
sdb which I have extended from 132 to 160. I think extended the
sdb3 partition to the max size putting it at 158.4. That then has two lvms under it, one at 128/128 and another at 2.4. The lvm I am trying to extend is called
cl_lifprodredo-root, so I tried running the commands
lvextend -r -l +100%FREE /dev/cl_lifprodredo/root and then I tried the same command with
sudo and adding the
-v flag as well. Both commands failed to extend the lvm. I've attached the output of the command
sudo lvextend -v -r -l +100FREE /dev/cl_lifprodredo/root as well.
If anyone has some additional advice on how to extend the lvm it would be greatly appreciated. It is a virtual machine so I am able to add additional space as needed, especially if the extra space needed to be allocated straight to the LVM and not the partition.
