Storage requirements are only going up. Knowing how to grow a current mount point rather than just creating new ones is an important skill that we’ll practice here.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Add the /dev/nvme3n1 disk to the vdoLV Logical Volume.
This task has multiple steps.
vgextend vdoDev /dev/nvme3n1
lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/vdoDev/vdoLV
- Extend the VDO Physical Disk to 60GB, and the Logical Size to 180GB
To extend the physical size, we’ll run:
vdo growPhysical --name=LA
And to extend the Logical size:
vdo growLogical --name=LA --vdoLogicalSize=180G
- Grow the XFS filesystem to match the underlying VDO disk
All we have to do here, in order to grow the underlying filesystem, is this:
