My VM came with a 9GB setup but a 60GB drive. I'm trying to extend it to it's full size. I have to do this on several servers. I tried to follow a guide else where but when creating a new partition I got this msg.
If you want to create more than four partitions, you must replace a primary partition with an extended partition first.
Here is some info you might find handy to help.
root@ubuntu:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 2.0G 4.0K 2.0G 1% /dev tmpfs 396M 584K 395M 1% /run /dev/dm-0 57G 3.0G 52G 6% / none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none 2.0G 0 2.0G 0% /run/shm none 100M 0 100M 0% /run/user /dev/sda1 134M 68M 57M 55% /boot root@ubuntu:~# fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 62.9 GB, 62914560000 bytes 64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 60000 cylinders, total 122880000 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: 0x00096132 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 292863 145408 83 Linux /dev/sda2 292864 2246655 976896 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda3 2246656 20969471 9361408 8e Linux LVM /dev/sda4 20969472 122879999 50955264 8e Linux LVM Disk /dev/mapper/CAC_VG-CAC_LV: 61.8 GB, 61761126400 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7508 cylinders, total 120627200 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: 0x00000000 Disk /dev/mapper/CAC_VG-CAC_LV doesn't contain a valid partition table`
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need additional info feel free to ask. I will be watching all morning.
Edit- I'm actually thinking that script I ran earlier worked and did extend the drives, but one server has that partition error and the other doesn't.
Edit - Fstab output

Edit- Output of script cloud host said to run

As you can see it looks like it doesn't work but when logging in I go from this
Usage of /: 13.1% of 8.66GB to Usage of /: 3.1% of 37.27GB
Thanks once again for your help.
