Shrink volume in Red Hat EL WS 4
Okay, I am a Windows admin. That being said I want to shrink a Linux volume and I am having trouble. I really don't know my way around Linux. I found a procedure for LVM and it is not working out. I booted said Linux to rescue disk, did these commands:
>vgchange - a y VolGroup00
#e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
#resize2fs /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 39GB
resize2fs 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
resize2fs: bad filesystem size - 39GB
Does not matter what size I use (45, 50, 60 70) always same error.
What is wrong. I read somewhere maybe a newer version of resize2fs
would work? I don't know much about installing sw in Linux. Also this is a pretty much fresh out of box install except for different video drivers.
