Solved: Missing disk space in Cloudguard Management

Jump to solution

Deployed a Cloudguard management appliance in Azure and in the section when it asks for additional disk space, I added 2000 GB so that the disk should be 2100 GB (wanted disk space for logging). However, when I do a df -h on the box, that disk space is not assigned to any partition as shown in the screenshot below. How do I assign that disk space to the management server log partition?

Solution:

  1. Boot the management server into maintenance mode. Follow sk170732.
  2. From expert mode, run lvm_manager and follow the menu options to resize the log partition. System will reboot.
  3. Revert the management server to normal mode. Refer to sk170732 again.

You should be able to complete the process from the lvm_manager menu.

With that said you should take a backup/snapshot of the system prior.

Additionally since this is a Mgmt server you probably want to execute the resizing process from maintenance mode (sk170732).

The process will involve a few reboots so you'll want to plan a maintenance window of sorts.

Do you see the free/unallocated space in lvm_manager?

Yes! I see it. What do I do next? I am looking thru sk94671 but I am not sure where to start.

I believe I have to start at Step 9 in sk94671 but the unallocated space does not have a device name as shown in the fdisk -l output and all the commands need a device name.

I agree with @Chris_Atkinson . Use lvm manager to extend the partition, thats the way to go.
