i am using LXD few years and i am glad to use this platform in my testing environment. But few days ago, i couldn't install Microsoft Sql server 2017. The reason was, that i used default ZFS backend. Ok, i checked, that if i need ext4. i have to use LVM. No problem, i created "Volume Group" and i marked to use this group in LXD. But ... First problem, that i saw, that LXD creates logical volumes not more, than 10GB.

After this command,

lxc init ubuntu:16.04 container2

i received this volume:

``` Disk /dev/mapper/mainVG-containers_container2: 10 GiB, 10737418240 bytes, 20971520 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 65536 bytes / 65536 bytes

``` I tried to add size via lvextend

lvextend -L +10G /dev/mapper/mainVG-containers_container2, but i received following error: Logical volume containers_container2 not found in volume group mainVG

Ok, i tried to create logical volume without LXD.

I made

lvcreate -n lv_data1 --size 12G mainVG

And i received

Disk /dev/mapper/mainVG-lv_data1: 12 GiB, 12884901888 bytes, 25165824 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

And i made

lvextend -L +10G /dev/mapper/mainVG-lv_data1 Size of logical volume mainVG/lv_data1 changed from 12.00 GiB (3072 extents) to 22.00 GiB (5632 extents). Logical volume mainVG/lv_data1 successfully resized.

How you can see, in this case i can succesfully resize my logical volume.

Maybe i don't know something ? Maybe i have to add something in some security group ? Can you help me please ? If you know other way to resize my Logical Volume, i will glad to hear it from you. Thanks
