I am fairly new with this.
I read many about expanding to the back of the current partition but how do I expand partition to the front of the disk. I need to keep the data on it as it is 1/4 part of a striped LV. Also the storage on a IBM DS3512 SAN.
I'm running the commands on 1 of the HA nodes that connect to the SAN.
currently # parted /dev/sdi GNU Parted 2.1 (parted) print Model: IBM 1746 FAStT (scsi) Disk /dev/sdi: 10.2TB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt
Number Start End Size File system Name Flags 4 5304GB 9438GB 4179GB lvm
I want this drive to use the full 10TB for this partition so I can expand PV and LV. I read gparted allowed expanding the partition to the front but the server has no gui so I could not run gparted.
