Resize filesystems on RH9+RAID5


Hi every body,

I'm looking the best way to resize partitions (or FileSystems), on RH9, which has 6 disks in a RAID5 configuration, without loss of datas.

i wonder if there is a mean to do it dynamically, without umount FS.

this is my filesystems configuration:

SysFichier Tail. Util. Disp. Uti% on

/dev/rd/c0d0p1 9.9G 4.4G 5.0G 47% /

/dev/rd/c0d0p3 20G 16G 2.8G 86% /sambacsi

/dev/rd/c0d0p5 15G 4.7G 9.0G 35% /home

none 756M 0 756M 0% /dev/shm

/dev/rd/c0d0p6 4.9G 51M 4.6G 2% /tmp

/dev/rd/c0d0p7 17G 4.5G 11G 29% /var

N.B: i want to reduce the size of /var and increase /sambacsi, without umount them.


I tried with parted, but it's doesn' work!!!!!!!!

thanks for your help.

There is no way to adjust the size of partitions without unmounting them. A mounted partition can't be moved/resized while it is live.

Peace,

Hi all,

ReiserFS allows filesystem to be "resize" with LVM installed without needing to unmount the partition.
