Hi,
I want to add a extra disk to my lvm-thin storage, here what I did :

Format the new disk cfdisk /dev/sdd
(One primary partition )
Code:
Model: ATA WDC WD6002FRYZ-0 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdd: 6001GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: gpt
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    File system  Name  Flags
 1      1049kB  6001GB  6001GB                     lvm

Then pvcreate /dev/sdd1

Extend volume group vgextend vmdata /dev/sdd1

Now I have :
Code:
vgdisplay vmdata
  --- Volume group ---
  VG Name               vmdata
  System ID             
  Format                lvm2
  Metadata Areas        2
  Metadata Sequence No  517
  VG Access             read/write
  VG Status             resizable
  MAX LV                0
  Cur LV                40
  Open LV               4
  Max PV                0
  Cur PV                2
  Act PV                2
  VG Size               <9.10 TiB
  PE Size               4.00 MiB
  Total PE              2384652
  Alloc PE / Size       2384652 / <9.10 TiB
  Free  PE / Size       0 / 0   
  VG UUID               lhtyEH-EYaQ-Od6L-FHvG-Qr6K-1YbD-K4dX4o

So I tried to extend lvm-thin :
lvresize --size 9.10T --poolmetadatasize 9.10T vmdata/vmstore

but I still get lv size of 3.70T:

Code:
lvdisplay vmdata/vmstore
  --- Logical volume ---
  LV Name                vmstore
  VG Name                vmdata
  LV UUID                MhJUXw-ZrWF-xJhW-9UXF-iw1b-skRk-KS91no
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Creation host, time pve, 2019-03-08 11:01:20 +0100
  LV Pool metadata       vmstore_tmeta
  LV Pool data           vmstore_tdata
  LV Status              available
  # open                 28
  LV Size                <3.70 TiB
  Allocated pool data    33.13%
  Allocated metadata     0.24%
  Current LE             969014
  Segments               1
  Allocation             inherit
  Read ahead sectors     auto
  - currently set to     256
  Block device           253:2

How can I can solve this ?
Thanks
 
Extend volume group vgextend vmdata /dev/sdd1
Please note that this is not too safe - if any of your two disks has a problem you lose all data (it behaves more or less like RAID0, without the speed improvment).

please post the output of
`pvs -a`
`vgs -a`
`lvs -a`

you probably don't want to give the whole size to poolmetadata - see `man lvmthin`

Hope this helps!

Ok, understood.

you probably don't want to give the whole size to poolmetadata - see `man lvmthin`

hum, yes, you are right.

Can I revert things and remove the extra disk from the volume group ?

Thanks.
