Topic: Unable to extend, SWAP filesystem shows as Unknown in GParted only
I was trying to increase a drive this morning and came across something ive never seen before. In GParted, it is showing my swap part as "Unknown." Normally, it will show up as linux swap and I can increase the size on there and then move the swap to the end and then expand sda1, etc. However, since it is not recognizing the swap properly, I do not get an option to extend the swap in to the unallocated space.
Do any of yall have any ideas on this? The swap FS shows up properly in the CentOS box (ID: 82 Linux swap / Solaris) and the main FS is just an ID 83 regular linux FS. See below for full output. Also, I've attached a screenshot of the GParted screen.

Thank you guys in advance for your consideration! This is a production server so im a little hesitant to make any uncertain changes on it. Have a good day!
