I need to extend the LVM on one server. This is the output of
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/cciss/c0d0p2 58G 26G 29G 48% / /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 476G 86G 366G 19% /u001/app/oracle /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 487M 17M 445M 4% /boot tmpfs 16G 730M 16G 5% /dev/shm
And I need to extend
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 from 475G to 700G. I have enough space to do this.
Any suggestions? Please mention all steps and prerequisites
Before I go and apply this on actual server. I first plan to do this on a virtual machine. So I installed 5.6 on VirtualBox and assigned 25GB for installation.
df -h result:
And when I used the command
lvextend -L +500M /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVoll00
its reply was “insufficient space”.
Although there is uninitialized space ready to be used.
Seems it didn't work. Please advice whats wrong here.
