LVM Resizing Overview
In our LVM Configuration KB, we showed how to create a linear mapped logical volume (LV). In this KB, we are going to build on our LVM knowledge and show you how to resize an existing ext3 file system and it's associate LV.
Note: Procedures for resizing XFS, ResierFS and other volumes may differ. You should check your documentation for non ext3 volumes before proceeding. Resizing a file system can also be destructive if not done properly. You should always make sure you have a backup of your data before attempting a resize!
Logical Volumes can be increased or decreased in size depending on your needs. However, resizing the LV does not eliminate the need to resize the file system contained within the LV. This is an important concept to understand since resizing the LV without resizing the file system can cause corruption of your data.
In the following pages, we will guide you through expanding and contracing LV's and their associated file systems. Let's get to it!
