I have spce in volume group but it can not increase the size of logical volume
 
Dear All

I have almost 108 Gb space .but when i increase the size of logical volume .it can not increase the size of logical volume.
i use the following command
herer is my detail of vgdisplay

lvextend -v -L +10G /dev/xen-vol/lvmtest-disk




after that i also use resize2fs /dev/xvda2

kindly help me in this regards

Thank you

Can we have your fdisk -l output as well? And can you edit your post to include the output from the commands in Code tags. its so frustrating to read through the output this way.

acid_kewpie 04-16-2012 04:27 AM

you said "it can not" but not said anything useful about what actually happens. Are you getting error message you're not sharing with us etc.?

As I said before, please use Code tags so that it is easier for members to read the computer output.

catkin 04-16-2012 05:46 AM

What was the output from lvextend -v -L +10G /dev/xen-vol/lvmtest-disk?

Is /dev/xvda2 in resize2fs /dev/xvda2 intended to be the same device? Why is it not also /dev/xen-vol/lvmtest-disk?

acid_kewpie 04-16-2012 05:46 AM

Why do you care what fdisk says? The VG is 150GB regardless of the physical disk it's on.

OK, this stuff you're posting isn't useful, and you're just repeating yourself. Can you answer the other questions you've been asked please?

But when i login to virtual machine it size not increase even i execute this command also

resize2fs /dev/xvda2

it also show me size has been increased
but when i check by df -h command

the size is old one.

acid_kewpie 04-16-2012 06:22 AM

You asked how to make an LV larger. You mentioned nothign at all about virtual machines. Is the LV larger or not?

Yes i want to increase the size of xen vitual machine disk .using lvm command .i use xen to create virtual machine .on debian squeeze

when i run lvextend -v -L +10G -n /dev/xen-vol/lvmtest-disk on host machine it show me the following message

it also show block size has increased

it show me the old hard disk size means changes not reflected on it.

acid_kewpie 04-16-2012 06:59 AM

is the ***LV*** larger? Forget anything on it. One thing at a time.

anis123 04-16-2012 07:22 AM

i have volume group

Don't understand

i just want to increse the size to virtual machine disk

acid_kewpie 04-16-2012 07:23 AM

you've shown us the lvdisplay, you've shown us a command's output. did the lv get larger or not?
