Topic: resize (grown) incomplete
In last night tried to do an resize of the partition of our server Dell Power Edge 2900 / PERC 6/i with the GParted Live CD. But before the beginning of the expansion process, GParted first started the 'checking file system'.
After two and a half hours, not knowing when the process would end, I decided then to cancel it, it is a web server in production.
After the system boot, I ran parted in the shell, to see if anything was wrong, and to my surprise the partition had been expanded, but that's the problem: when I run the command 'df -h' it tells me the original size, without the expansion.
- See below the result through the print in parted, the partition is the number 5:
Model: DELL PERC 6/i (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 2096GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
1 32.3kB 107MB 107MB primary ext3 boot
2 107MB 42.0GB 41.9GB primary ext3
3 42.0GB 50.4GB 8390MB primary linux-swap
4 50.4GB 2096GB 2046GB extended
5 50.4GB 2096GB 2046GB logical ext3
Size of partition number 5: 2046GB (expanded!!!)
- See now, below, the result via the 'df -h', the partition is /dev/sda5:
[root@itabi ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2 38G 11G 26G 29% /
/dev/sda1 99M 39M 56M 41% /boot
tmpfs 8.0G 0 8.0G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda5 1.3T 1.1T 170G 87% /infonet
tmpfs 768M 143M 626M 19% /infonet/httpd-webmail/var/www/tmpsession
Size of partition number 5 (/dev/sda5): 1.3T (not expanded!!!)
Any idea how to fix this?
