Extendind lvm-thin size after converting raid


Renowned Member
I have converted successfully a HW RAID 6 partition to a RAID 5 for more space:

a0 PERC H700 Integrated encl:1 ldrv:1 batt:good
a0d0 2791GiB RAID 5 1x6 optimal

Trying to increase the lvm-thin volume pve/data with the extra space.
Anyone know exact steps? Trying not to break this server.
