  6. Extend LVM and LVM-Thin

    Hi folks, how do I resize my LVM and LVM-Thin? I changed my main drive from a 60GB ssd to a 500GB ssd (cloned the drive with clonezilla).

  10. LXC disk larger than LV and run out of space

    I've done something really stupid. I've allocated 300GB of space to a LXC container but my Logical Volume only has 233GB. This was ok, until the LXC started to use more and now will not boot. The Volume group and Physical volume also have no space left. Is there anything I can do to...
  11. Automation of space increase

    Looking through most recent threads on resizing, I can see wiki links on how to do this via commands within the VM but nothing specific outside of the VM. We want to automate this so if an order comes in for an increase it can happen without user involvement or needing to get in to the VM...

  15. Volumes kopieren, und dadurch Platz sparen?

    Hallo, ich habe verstanden, dass das verkleinern von Volumes nicht so ganz einfach und/oder risikofrei ist.
