Topic: Extend Extended Partition Linux /CentOS7
Please view the screenshot at the url below:
This was taken using GParted Live/Boot CD.
Recently, we moved our raid from a 1TB Raid (mirror) to a 4TB Raid (mirror) using Clonezilla. (device to device copy option.)
Our client needed the extra space. I am trying to get one giant partition from the unallocated space or 2 appropriately sized partitions from the unallocated space.
It is my understanding that you can have up to a max of 4 primary partitions and one extended.
Within the extended partition, you can create your logical partitions. This is where I wish to create my partition. In fact, I believe I have no choice in the matter because this Centos 7 environment, at least in this scenario, had already 4 Primary partitions filled, therefore I must create my additional partitions in my extended partition area.
However, I am having difficulty extended my extended partition area to the unallocated space.
When I select sdc4, I can't extended it or add space to it (the resize/move button is greyed out)
When I select sdc5 (as a last resort), even though I can select the resize/move option, there is no space to grow it at all. So I am literally stuck!
Can anyone help? Thanks
