    My colleague had created VM onVirtual Box. It is arround 50 GB total. out of that as follows
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda2 35G 12G 22G 34% /
    /dev/sda1 190M 12M 169M 7% /boot
    /dev/sda3 13G 12G 465M 97% /data
    none 1.1G 0 1.1G 0% /dev/shm
    Main Application is running on /data. It is about to full the data partition.
    It is not lvm partition.

    Please give me any suggestion.
    is any way extend the /data size or reduce the size of / and increase the /data partion.

    Hi Babin,
    Thanks for such nice article.
    I am having some scenario such as we want to move the Stripped LV using pvmove to another server.
    Can you help us regarding the same. As I have mentioned that these are Stripped LV so destination should have the Stripped LV after migration.

    Thank you,
    Anil Rarthod

    Babin I need your help!

    I have a VM image with two virtual disks. On this VM, there is only one volume group, vg0. But vg0 is made of two physical volumes – one from each disk.

    I have added a third disk and cloned the two primary partitions on the above OS, but now need to copy over the LVM partitions to the disk. How can I do this in Suse 11? I thinking to just copy the whole vg0 over to the new disk, not sure how…
