How to add a disk to lvm

November 11th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments
Add disk and expand in a Logical Volume no reboot, but not for /root /(boot).

Tested in Linux CentOS/RedHat 5.7  /var

First add a disk in (VMWare)

 echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host0/scan
 fdisk -l
 fdisk /dev/sdb
 mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 

Add to lvm
 pvcreate /dev/sdb1

Add to existing Volume Group
 vgextend VG_30 /dev/sdb1

Resize the Logical Volume
 lvresize -L +8GB /dev/mapper/VG_30-LV_VAR

Resize to the FS
 resize2fs -p /dev/mapper/VG_30-LV_VAR
