4.3. Growing a File System on a Logical Volume
To grow a file system on a logical volume, perform the following steps:
- Make a new physical volume.
- Extend the volume group that contains the logical volume with the file system you are growing to include the new physical volume.
- Extend the logical volume to include the new physical volume.
- Grow the file system.
If you have sufficient unallocated space in the volume group, you can use that space to extend the logical volume instead of performing steps 1 and 2.
