Part 2: Adding Additional Virtual Hard Drives
<li>Issue the command: <b><code><span style="color:#3366CC;font-size:1.2em;">ls /dev/vd*</span></code></b>, what has changed?</li>
<li>Use '''fdisk''' (''refer to how to use in Part 1'') to create a new single '''primary''' partition for '''/dev/vdb''' that fills the ''entire'' disk, save partition table (accepting defaults prompts would work), restart your '''centos2''' VM and then '''format''' that partition for file type: '''ext4'''.</li>
<li>Now we'll make the new device a '''physical volume''', add it to the '''volume group'''by issuing the following commands:<br><b><code><span style="color:#3366CC;font-size:1.2em;">pvcreate /dev/vdb1</span></code></b> (enter '''y''' to proceed - ignore warning)<br><b><code><span style="color:#3366CC;font-size:1.2em;">vgextend centos_centos2 /dev/vdb1</span></code></b><br><br>'''NOTE:''' If you experience an error message, issue the '''ssm list''' command, and check the '''volume group name''' under the '''"pool"''' section.<br>If the volume group name is different than '''centos_centos2''', then use that volume group name for all remaining commands that use "centos_centos2"<br><br></li>
<li>Re-issue the '''ssm list''' command to see if there is any change.</li>
<li>Issue the following command to extend the logical volume for the home file-system: <b><code><span style="color:#3366CC;font-size:1.2em;">lvextend -r centos_centos2/home --size +2G</span></code></b></li>
