I was trying to do a simple hard drive extend through GParted but was unable to because it shows my swap as unknown. Running this on a CentOS system, sda1 is ext3 and the swap is sda2. The unallocated is behind the swap, so im unable to get to it until I can move the swap to the end. However, since Gparted is showing the swap as "Unknown" it will not let me modify it. Have yall ever seen this before?
Here is a screenshot from the GParted interface showing details on the partitions and also below is the output of FDISK on the server itself.
Disk /dev/sda: 107.4 GB, 107374182400 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 13054 cylinders, total 209715200 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00069ccb Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 2048 134219775 67108864 83 Linux /dev/sda2 134219776 135682047 731136 82 Linux swap / Solaris
Do yall have any ideas on this? Since it is just swap should i be able to format it in GParted? Or, is there any other way of just extending SDA1? Im searching for some answers but wanted to post about it here as well. This is on a production server so I definitely want to be certain about getting it right. :)
Thanks in advance for your consideration! :)
EDIT: It looks like if the swap is encrypted it will show as Unknown -- but I can't seem to find any information on how to extend if the swap is encrypted. There is no LVM going on here, just a regular linux native partition. ID: 83 and swap is 82.
