Increase size to sd[b-c]

hi guys

I am working on my vmware workstation.

I have a /dev/sdb which is 5GB. I am using LVM.

Now I increase /dev/sdb 2 more GB.

fdisk -l shows 7 GB but pvscan still shows 5GB.

how do I make my system recognize the new 7GB added and be able to add those to my physical volumen and extend my volume group and logical volumen

thanks a lot

Hi.

Which Linux?

On RHEL, for example, it would be:
Code:
# pvresize /dev/sdb

Then you can extend your LV with:
Code:
# lvextend -l+100%FREE /dev/<vgname>/<lvname>

and the filesystem with resize2fs
