Resize R80 partition

I am trying to resize one of my paritions because it keeps complaining that /opt is low on space.

I followed the instructions in the link below:

https://www.51sec.org/2014/08/resize-checkpoint-firewalls-diskpartition-space-gaia-and-splat-platfor... 

Step 4 worked - lvresize -L 11G vg_splat/lv_current

But step 5 gives me the following error:

[Expert@r80_mgr:0]# resize2fs /dev/vg_splat-lv_current
resize2fs 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
open: No such file or directory while opening /dev/vg_splat-lv_current

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tired both and had no luck. Ended up building a new R80.20 Manager with a bigger HD. The good thing is I learned how easy it is to backup and restore a Checkpoint Manager. Worked without issue.

Thanks for all the suggestions/help

Check out the following sk131332 How to resize XFS partitions in R80.20 

"R80.20 has moved from the ext3 file system to the XFS file system for its lv_log and lv_current partitions. Resize2fs does not work on XFS. As a result, you will not be able to add disk space as per sk114115"

Both these SK's seem to be restricted to CP employee's; can these be made public?

Is there a problem with getting to that SK article? I keep getting the error 

Error encountered processing a template.

 

I'd really like to read the document as I have a partition I'd like to resize but I don't want to mess it up.

It still not working for me, I can't see any reason why this should not be visible, can CP please explain why this is not accessible?

Hi,

sk95566 is open to every logged in user. I just checked it again and did not experience any issues. If you are logged in with your User Center credentials and still experience the issue, even when trying using an incognito window (to rule out cache issues) , please contact me privately (rzel@checkpoint.com) and we will get to the bottom of it.

Hi,

sk131332 was deleted on April 2019 since it was wrong and misleading. Did you encounter a reference to it recently? If so can you share where?

Can confirm, used lvm_manager two weeks ago on R80.40 to grow the /var/log partition and it worked fine.

Timothy - thanks for the confirmation, I assume as this is xfs filesystem this would imply R81.x would also work, and the same consideration applies i.e. you can increase diskspace only.

it's "/dev/mapper/vg_splat-lv_current"

because this commande       resize2fs /dev/vg_splat-lv_current       is not correct

the correct command is        resize2fs /dev/vg_splat/lv_current

you can use xfs_growfs /dev/vg_splat/lv_current instead of resize2fs /dev/vg_splat/lv_current after R80.3 later

as Checkpoint seem to tease with the SK (but not actually let us have access to it), would it not be simpler to just update the lvm_manager tool so we could carry on using this (or does this just work, not personally tried it)
