add a drive to jbod


I currently have 3 drives with 4TB in LVM2 and I want to add another 1TB drive to the mix.

How can I do this without loosing my data.

The drives are all using XFS and configured in LVM2.

Im running Gentoo X64

Thank you for the help

Sorry, Im not running JBOD. Im running them in LVM2 so it may be easier to add a disk.

After adding the physical volume to the LVM group, and adding it to the logical volume, use
xfs_growfs to expand the filesystem.

This post lists the commands you need. Use xfs_growfs instead of resize2fs in the last stop.
