Re: resize2fs on LVM2 on hardware RAID5

Hmm, so that means I am stuck... The system was installed from a (modified for 3Ware card + LVM support) Sarge install CD which means 1.37 for e2fsprogs (I checked). So this means the -O option wasn't used...
Damn.. this will mean I will have to recreate all filesystems on the box... That's going to be some downtime somewhere...
There is no alternative? No way to 'migrate' this fs to work with resizing?

I did some more poking
around. /usr/share/doc/e2fsprogs/REALEASE-NOTES.gz referes to debian
bug #380548. In there is mention of whether the filesystem was created
with the -O resize_inode option or not. Apparently this became default
in e2fsprogs 1.39. If you used a default mke2fs prior to that youmay
not have that option in the filesystem which may be causing the
problem. Looks like you might need to mirror the fs somewhere else
while you get it redone.
