even weirder is that when I try to see the physical parameters of
the disk, which is clearly a 68.37GB. Further
lvm> pvs
  PV         VG           Fmt  Attr PSize  PFree
  /dev/sda2  AUASTMRCP-01 lvm2 a-   43.21G    0
shows the main partition to be 43.21GB and if /dev/sda1 is boot and
/dev/sda2 is the lvm volume and /dev/sda2 is the "whole disk", then
how/where do I extend this volume to?
/# fdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda (Sun disk label): 24 heads, 424 sectors, 8922 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 10176 * 512 bytes

Are you sure that it really is a 72G disk? The label above says 8922 cylinders
and this translates to

8922 * 10176 * 512 = 46484619264  which is around 44GB and that matches what your partitions are.

If that is the case then your disk label is wrong.



Hi Richard,
yes, I am pretty sure, unless the firmware on the HDD is also reporting the wrong model. Here's the dmesg output of when the system detects the disks
# dmesg | grep -i seagate
