Hallo zusammen,

Ich möchte mich mit diesem Post für dieses Jahr verabschieden.  Im nachsten Jahr versuche ich wieder mehr zu Posten unter einem neuen Blog. Im neuen Jahr werde ich diesen Blog auf einen neuen Server migrieren.

Ich Wünsche euch und euren Familien ein guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr!

Viele grüße und bis bald
Sven

If the vg are emtpy

$ sudo vgs
VG #PV #LV #SN Attr VSize VFree
rootvg 1 12 0 wz--n- 19.79g 7.10g

and you need space in the VG (in this example, the rootvg).

Add new Hard driver:

clip_image002[4]

clip_image004[4]

clip_image006[4]

clip_image008[4]

clip_image010[4]

clip_image012

Adding new DISK!!! (expansion of existing disks is supported but very complicated under Linux)

When the Hard disk is you can check the hard disks:

$ cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name
8 0 20971520 sda
8 1 208844 sda1
8 2 20755980 sda2
253 255 524288 dm-255
...

after rescan the SATA bus as root (sudo su -):

echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host0/scan

you can check the Harddisks again:

$ cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name
8 0 20971520 sda
8 1 208844 sda1
8 2 20755980 sda2
253 255 524288 dm-255
...
8 16 2097152 sdb

you see know the new harddisk called "sdb".

Know you can resize the rootvg:

at first we must create a physical volume from /dev/sdb

$ sudo pvcreate /dev/sdb
Physical volume "/dev/sdb" successfully created
$ sudo pvs
PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
/dev/sda2 rootvg lvm2 a- 19.79g 7.10g
/dev/sdb lvm2 a- 2.00g 2.00g

if it gives an error like this:

$ sudo vgextend rootvg /dev/sdb
No space for '/dev/sdb' - volume group 'rootvg' holds max 1 physical volume(s).
Unable to add physical volume '/dev/sdb' to volume group 'rootvg'.

you can fix it with this command:

$ sudo vgchange rootvg -p 0
Volume group "rootvg" successfully changed
-p, --maxphysicalvolumes MaxPhysicalVolumes
Changes the maximum number of physical volumes that can belong to this volume group. For volume groups with metadata in lvm1 format, the limit is 255. If the metadata uses lvm2 format, the value 0 removes this restriction: there is then no limit. If you have a large number of physical volumes in a volume group with metadata in lvm2 format, for tool performance reasons, you should consider some use of --pvmetadatacopies 0 as described in pvcreate(8), and/or use --vgmetadatacopies.
$ sudo vgextend rootvg /dev/sdb
Volume group "rootvg" successfully extended

after this doing the rootvg is extend and have the new size:

$ sudo vgs
VG #PV #LV #SN Attr VSize VFree
rootvg 2 12 0 wz--n- 21.79g 9.09g
