    OVM 3.2.1 / OEL 5.6 Template:  How to resize the  /boot partition

    Mark E. LLoyd / DCT-Accenture
      I need to enlarge the /boot partition from its default 100 MB to 300 MB for OEL 5.6.

      I am using OVM_OL5U6_X86_64_PVM_10GB.tgz from Oracle edelivery.

      Examining the modifyjeos manpage there is no function for extending and/or modifying /boot that I can locate unless it is an undocumented feature.

      The way the disk partitions are laid out in the template make it very daunting as well with

      /dev/xvda1 /boot
      /dev/xvda2 /
      /dev/xvda3 swamp

      Perhaps there is an undocumented means via modifyjeos to change the partitioning layout ? or, even better, increase the size of /boot inside the template itself via modifyjeos or some other OVM 3.2.1 and.or OEL 5.X magic
