View Full Version : Question on LVM2

21st April 2006, 02:12 AM
Can someone tell me if you can resize an LVM2 partition up and down in size without unmounting it? I am doing a comparision to AIX 5.3 and you do not have to umount any part of the Root VG to resize it which makes linux a tough sell to the IBM bigots if it can't be done.

I tried a umount -l and I am able to resize the filesystem and partition but can't mount it after I make any changes. I have to reboot in order to get the partition remounted.

Any help would be appreciated...
