Wants to extend two VGs which belong to one PV.


I have one existing Physical Volume & two Volume groups.
Once new external storage will assign to this server I want to increase both the Volume Groups for a certain amount, because there are as many as logical Volumes under both the Volume Groups & need to extend them.
Could you please suggest me whether it is possible, if yes then how?
Please help me out from the issue.

Thanks & Regards,

(assuming you're discussing LVM) ... I'm not sure a pv can belong to 2 vg's, perhaps you can post the output of 'pvs' and 'vgs'?
