I have a virtual machine (on Hyper-V host) running Ubuntu server 16.04.3. It is set up to have dynamically expanding virtual hard disk (VHDX).
I have disk space issues when trying to "tab-complete" names:
-bash: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device
df -h and here is what the server responded:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 221M 0 221M 0% /dev tmpfs 48M 1.8M 47M 4% /run /dev/mapper/zapp--vg-root 2.0G 2.0G 0 100% / tmpfs 240M 0 240M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 240M 0 240M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/sda1 472M 70M 379M 16% /boot tmpfs 48M 0 48M 0% /run/user/1000
Obviously, that 2.0G partition is full. However, the virtual disk hadn't reached the size allowed size (3.0GB max, 2.69GB real).
We tried to expand the disk limit to 5GB, but the server doesn't seem to notice and use the available space - even after a restart.
Is it possible to allow these partitions to expand when needed until the cap of disk size is reached? Or what should be done here?
sdaas having 5GB now. I was hoping the partitions could take up more space as needed, is that not possible?
