Increase LVM-thin by reducing LVM (OS disk)


New Member

Not sure if anyone has run into this issue but I have a 400GB disk and the OS is assigned 100GB (but only uses less than 5GB). The LVM-thin has about 300GB. I wanted to increase LVM-thin to 380GB and reduce LVM to 20GB). Normally I would reinstall proxmox but this server sits in a remote site and reinstalling would not be an option. I do have another node in a cluster and can move the VM on to that, if I had to re-create LVM-thin. Also I was able to upgrade from 7.4 to 8.0.4 on another server, would an upgrade on this server allow me to re-partition the drives? Sorry still new to proxmox and linux in general.

Thanks in advance.
