To increase the size of my linux filesystem

Is it possible to increase the filesystem size in Linux? I mean something like extendfs command in HP-UX.
Thanks

Re: To increase the size of my linux filesystem

Hi,

resize2fs in e2fsprogs rpm is same as extendfs in HP-UX.


As you know, you must extend partition before you extend the filesystem.

I recommend you to create the backup before you manipulate the partition.

Good luck

Re: To increase the size of my linux filesystem

especially as you can't change the partition size on the fly (no on line JFS !)

man resize2fs has some good warnings.
