Hi all, I have some trouble resizing a partition. My setup is as follows: - Xen dom0 with a large disk, divided in several LVM logical volumes - a Xen domU which "attaches" a logical volume from the dom0 as a disk - drbd8 within the domU, drbd8 sees disk "/dev/sda5" - ext3 on the drbd partition Now, I'm trying to resize the partition, adding 200G. In the dom0 I do: lvresize -L +200G domU/host-data Which is succesful. However, Xen doesn't recognise the enlarged partition and the domU needs a reboot. After the reboot, drbd doesn't want to start anymore, it tells me it cannot find the metadata on the disk and if I could be so kind as to recreate the md. Which I rather not, since I'd like to use the data on there. I think the problem is that the metadata is written at the end of a disk/logical volume and since I added 200G, drbd can't find it anymore. Could this be the case? Is there a way around this? Luckily I was able to get things working again by simply reversing the process. Any tips and help would be greatly appreciated. -- Gegroet, Tim
