lvm problems

Post by mrichardson » 2005/03/17 03:53:31

I cannot seem to get lvextend to work...

# lvresize -L+32G VolGroup00 /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
Path required for Logical Volume "VolGroup00"
Please provide a volume group name
lvresize: Resize a logical volume

Can someone give me the proper syntax as the man pages and web pages all suck. That, or I'm dumb. Whichever is the case, please help!

to increase the current logical volume size use:

lvextend -L +xG /dev/vg_name/lv_name

note: lvextend cannot be performed if the volume group is activated in shared modes, for furhter informations see lvextend manpag.


cheers
