Hi all, I am trying to add support for growing storage on nodes. Currently I have this (as an example): === an-c05n01:~# parted -a opt /dev/sda "print free" Model: LSI RAID 5/6 SAS 6G (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 599GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B Partition Table: msdos Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 32.3kB 1049kB 1016kB Free Space 1 1049kB 538MB 537MB primary ext4 boot 2 538MB 4833MB 4295MB primary linux-swap(v1) 3 4833MB 26.3GB 21.5GB primary ext4 4 26.3GB 599GB 573GB extended lba 5 26.3GB 333GB 307GB logical 6 333GB 599GB 266GB logical ==== I am currently using LSI's MegaCli64 to add a new physical disk to the RAID array, and when it's done, the virtual disk (/dev/sda) should be ~300 GB larger. I expect that will show up as unused space in parted. In the above, /dev/sda5 and /dev/sda6 back /dev/drbd0 and /dev/drbd1 respectively. Say I want to grow both partitions evenly, I will first need to move /dev/sda6 ~150GB down the disk to make space for growing /dev/sda5. So reading parted's docs, I should be able to run: parted -a opt /dev/sda "move 6 483G" However, it lists in the docs that the "FS" needs to support this, and well, DRBD is not an FS. So has anyone tried this? Is it supported at all? Thanks! 1. https://www.gnu.org/software/parted/manual/html_chapter/parted_2.html#SEC20 PS - I have no idea if the grow will even work properly, still waiting for it to finish. :) -- Digimer Papers and Projects: https://alteeve.ca/w/ What if the cure for cancer is trapped in the mind of a person without access to education?
