Grow A LVM Partition

Problem

I have a lvm partition that's full. I'm pretty sure I have physical disk available.

Solution

I've done this live.

  • Check your available disk:
    # vgdisplay
  • If you need more physical disk, go look at this instead: Adding Disk To A LVM Partition
  • Grow the logical volume:
    # lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/fedora/root
  • Grow the file system on the drive:
    # xfs_growfs /

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
