LXer: How To Resize RAID Partitions (Shrink & Grow) (Software RAID)

Published at LXer:

This article describes how you can shrink and grow existing software RAID partitions. I have tested this with non-LVM RAID1 partitions that use ext3 as the file system. I will describe this procedure for an intact RAID array and also a degraded RAID array.
