ubuntu server is running on VM, initial setup was to have 10GB size, then increased it to 5GB, total of 15GB.
root@media:~# pvscan PV /dev/sda5 VG media lvm2 [9.76 GiB / 0 free] PV /dev/sda4 VG media lvm2 [5.00 GiB / 0 free] Total: 2 [14.76 GiB] / in use: 2 [14.76 GiB] / in no VG: 0 [0 ]
above shows, extended lvm to 15GB.
Few days later, i added another 15GB, total of 30GB as seen below:
Disk /dev/sda: 32.2 GB, 32212254720 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3916 cylinders, total 62914560 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0002948a Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 499711 248832 83 Linux /dev/sda2 501758 20969471 10233857 5 Extended /dev/sda4 20969472 31457279 5243904 8e Linux LVM /dev/sda5 501760 20969471 10233856 8e Linux LVM
when i try to create another partition out of /dev/sda, im getting below error
All primary partitions are in use Adding logical partition 6 No free sectors available
how can i use my unallocated disk to extend my lvm? i cant seem to create a new partition anymore. is there a limit to it?
