I have a CentOS VM with only one disk on a Xenserver.
The disk has 2 partitions:
/dev/xvda1 -> /boot
/dev/xvda2 -> a physical volume for LVM
I added 5GB to this disk via Xencenter to extend /dev/xvda2. Usually I
just have to do “pvresize /dev/xvda” to have the additional space added to the disk. But for some reason it does not work for this disk.
[root ~]# pvresize /dev/xvda
Failed to find physical volume “/dev/xvda”.
0 physical volume(s) resized / 0 physical volume(s) not resized
[root ~]# pvresize /dev/xvda2
Physical volume “/dev/xvda2” changed
1 physical volume(s) resized / 0 physical volume(s) not resized
Does someone have seen this problem before or could have an idea of the problem?
