    update mount


    I have redhat 5.2 server.
    /dev/mapper/optlv 32G 4.0G 26G 14% /opt

    The systems team is going to attache 200 GB of disk storage
    to the server.

    I need to expand the mount /opt disk space to 100 GB or add a new mount as /opt with 100GB of disk space. The /opt file system contains 3.9 of data at this time.

    How can I do that? thanks

    Hi,

    You need to familiarize yourself with the LVM2 userland tools. See a list of them here, in the online man page for lvm. You can do
    Code:
    man $LVMTOOL
    on your system to read the man page for any of the tools. This is an indispensable source of information.

    Guides abound on the internet for doing what you require. Here is one, for starters that looks pretty comprehensive.

    Systems unit is attaching 200 GB of disk space. Can I use LVM to expand the /opt file system.
