lvm volume resize by extending virtual disk image file

June 27th, 2016

Below should be ran from Dom0 hosting DomU:

[root@Dom0 ~]# virt-filesystems -a System.img
/dev/sda1
/dev/vg01/lv_root

[root@Dom0 ~]# virt-filesystems --long --parts --blkdevs -h -a System.img
Name Type MBR Size Parent
/dev/sda1 partition 83 500M /dev/sda
/dev/sda2 partition 8e 12G /dev/sda
/dev/sda device - 12G -

[root@Dom0 ~]# truncate -s 20G System_new.img

[root@Dom0 ~]# virt-resize --expand /dev/sda2 System.img System_new.img

[root@Dom0 ~]# mv System.img System.img.bak;mv System_new.img System.img

[root@Dom0 ~]# xm create vm.cfg -c #the first run may get issue "device cannot be connected", you can just run it again, the issue should be gone

Below should be ran from DomU:

[root@DomU ~]# vgs
VG #PV #LV #SN Attr VSize VFree
vg01 1 2 0 wz--n- 20.51g 8.00g

[root@DomU ~]# lvextend -L +8g /dev/mapper/vg01-lv_root
[root@DomU ~]# resize2fs /dev/mapper/vg01-lv_root

[root@DomU ~]# df -h /
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg01-lv_root
20G 10G 10G 50% /

Good Luck!
