I'm trying to increase the total size of my logical volume. You'd think this would be simple, but, for some reason:
For extra clarity, I'm trying to resize the lvmGroupName itself, NOT lvmGroupName/home or lvmGroupName/usr or lvmGroupName/etc.
Here's what I mean:
I cannot for the life of me, change the size of this underlying volume. Here's what I've tried:
# lvextend -L+5120M /dev/lvmData
# lvextend -L+5120M lvmData /dev/lvmData
# lvextend -L+5120M lvmData
# lvresize -L+5120M /dev/lvmData
# lvresize -L+5120M lvmData /dev/lvmData
# lvresize -L+5120M lvmData
Every one of those commands results in the following message:
Path required for Logical Volume "lvmData"
Please provide a volume group name
Run `lvextend --help' for more information.
Oh, but it is the damned path, and it is the damned volume group name!
I've RTFM a bunch of times. I've searched google and found one other person with a similar question, and he ended up not finding an answer. It seems that it is impossible, my dear reader, to change the total size of the underlying lvm group; at least, not without your advice.
How do I make it grow?
