Resize storage pool with new disk


Apr 3, 2020
I am new to Proxmox and LVS, and I hope someone will be able to help.

I run out of space, see below.

sda 8:0 0 111.8G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 1007K 0 part
├─sda2 8:2 0 512M 0 part /boot/efi

I am not really familiar with LVS yet but I understand, new 3 VMs are virtually allocated 32Gb and only use 60.7G.

I also understand 13.87Gb are available to resize any of these volumes, right ?

Now, I added a new disk (recognized as /dev/sda and the former disk where Proxmox is installed on /dev/sdb):



Can I extend my "local-lvm" storage with the new disk space ?


Thanks, and stay safe
