    add extra space to root filesystem

    jasper klerks
      Hi,

      I downloaded the oracle vm templates for enterprise manager 12c.
      All setup went well, but when i look at the / filesystem i see only about 1000 mb free space.
      How can i add more disk space to the / filesystem.

      I want to update this virtual machine, but i am worried the / filesystem runs out of space.

      Please advise.

      Greets,

      Jasper.

            Hi,

            That link should be usefull if there were any volume goups that could be managed with lvm.

            fdisk -l shows:

            Disk /dev/xvda: 6720 MB, 6720053760 bytes
            255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 817 cylinders
            Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

            Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
            /dev/xvda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
            /dev/xvda2 14 294 2257132+ 83 Linux
            /dev/xvda3 295 817 4200997+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris

            Disk /dev/xvdb: 28.9 GB, 28994112000 bytes
            255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3525 cylinders
            Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

            Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
            /dev/xvdb1 1 3525 28314531 83 Linux

            lvdisplay
            No volume groups found
            pvscan
            No matching physical volumes found

            any idea's ?

              The Oracle VM Manager allows you to resize or add a virtual disk. You could check the Oracle VM documentation or perhaps use a procedure similar to http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=3786220. Your issue rather belongs to the Oracle VM forum.
