Lightbulb resize2fs: No space left on device While trying to add group #4

Hi All,

I'm new to Redhat. I'm Familiar with Hp Unix. Currently i made a setup of RHEL5.1 on system z. I'm tyring to extend the Volume.(ie)Logical volume of /var. It throws the error. But i was able to extend all other volemes. Please see the error & do the neeful at the earlies !

Step 1: -
# lvextend -L 7G /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02
Extending logical volume LogVol02 to 7.00 GB
Logical volume LogVol02 successfully resized
Step 2:-
# resize2fs /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02
resize2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
Filesystem at /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02 is mounted on /var; on-line resizing required
Performing an on-line resize of /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02 to 1835008 (4k) blocks.
resize2fs: No space left on device While trying to add group #4

Step 3 :-

--- Logical volume ---
LV Name /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02
VG Name VolGroup00
LV UUID z29cYJ-xN1f-rkdd-Cl5G-BpAE-EK8j-Z9HB0h

LV Status available
# open 1
LV Size 7.00 GB

I don't like online resizing, but I might try removing the journal first, and see how that goes.

After-thought: if you are running RHEL on zSeries, why not ask Redhat ???. You've paid for support (presumably).
