Extending Linux Logical Volume

Thanks to this page

First, find the volume in /dev/. On the server, this was in /dev/cciss/:

# ls
c0d0 c0d0p1 c0d0p2 c0d1 c0d1p1

c0d0 was already in the Logical Volume; we want to add c0d1.
# pvcreate /dev/cciss/c0d1p1
Physical volume "/dev/cciss/c0d1p1" successfully created

vgextend VolGroup00 /dev/cciss/c0d1p1
Volume group "VolGroup00" successfully extended

Need to have installed system-config-lvm. This is a graphical tool where you can go into the Logical View of VolGroup00, “Edit Properties”, and reset the size (“Use remaining”). Click “OK” and wait for the volume to get bigger.
