Re: LVM question SOLVED

I managed to work out what was wrong! instead of using /dev/mapper/onboard--sata-static I should have used /dev/onboard-sata/static as soon as i made this simple change everything worked :) sorry for being such a newbie....

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, i did the following

resize_reiserfs -s-14G /dev/mapper/onboard--sata-static

Which finished saying "resize_reiserfs: Resizing finished successfully."

But when I then tried to resize the LV using 

lvreduce -L -14G /dev/mapper/onboard--sata-static

I get the following error

Volume group mapper doesn't exist

What have I done wrong?

Hi Gabe,

I've just installed linux on a new machine and thought I'd give RAID +
LVM a go :) I've now discovered that I've created them the wrong sizes. 
I now need to shrink one and extend the other.

I want to shrink LV /dev/onboard-sata/static by 20GB then extend LV
/dev/onboard-sata/home by 20Gb.  I'm using reiserfs and not sure how I
should correctly resize these volumes.  what is right way to do this?

For the reducing, go here:
(Go down a bit until you see the section for reiserfs)

For the extending go here:

(Again, do down for Reiserfs)
