Partitioning unused space, OpenBSD
13Gb disk, made an image, restored the image on a 150GB disk.
The new disk now has 13GB partitioned and the server runs fine.

What I now want to do is partition the 135GB and use it for /home, currently residing on a 10,4GB partition. I have read up on fdisk on OpenBSD but I get only how-to's assuming an empty disk and a clean installation. Plus a warning that fdisk on OpenBSD is a bit of a different matter than on Linux.

Tips, anyone?

Here is a guy in a similar situation asking on openbsd's misc list (which you should sign up for if you plan on using OpenBSD for anything more than a hobby).

Thanks, it seems I can get from there what I need (not quite sure yet).
The list is a good tip. The server in question is a production server in the office I have to admin (with help from someone more knowledgeable of Linux and *BSD but he is not at the office right now).

It turned out disklabel needed to be told how big the disk actually was. Which I retrospectively did find in the thread but not in a way I understood at that moment. Learned something new along the way :-)
