My customer said he had 4 disks configured as raid 5 now he added a new disk in this array now he want to extend the logical volume of this volume. could you guide me the steps for performing this task.

    Whenever I modify the LVM on my server, I use the system graphical tool, 'system-config-lvm'. I've never used it over a raid array, however. You may need to install the tool first, but it should be available through the package manager or yum.

    Some BIOS, like mine, have settings that you use for RAID setup, I don't use it or know much about it but it is there. I use an AMI BIOS.
