  1. Help expanding root ZFS rpool partition (self.Proxmox)

    Yup I ran the command then rebooted but but the pool is still showing the old capacity. The oracle docs say you can use the command before or after the other steps but maybe Proxmox gets confused if you run it after like I did. Thanks for the help though.
