RHEL6. VMware VM.
I want to move /data and all the files it contains into a new lv in existing vg.
/data is mapped directly onto sdc1 and is 100% full
/dev/sdc1 315G 299G 16M 100% /data
Fdisk shows sdc1 is 83 LINUX & it is not in pvs
Disk /dev/sdc: 343.6 GB, 343597383680 bytes /dev/sdc1 1 41773 335541591 83 Linux
UUID=dc3fc363-2a6e-44c5-1234-ed59983762db /data ext4 defaults 1 2
I have created a new lv of adequate size in a pre existing vg
I then need to mount /data on this lv without losing any data.
What is the safest way of doing this?
I thought of creating a new mountpoint /datanew and rsync the data to that but then unsure how to nondestructive rename the new mountpoint back to the old name and if this step is really needed.
