Extend LVM Disk Linux

This Article Will Describe step by step how to extend LVM Disk On Linux :-

1- After adding New Harddisk to the server you have to ReScan The Scsi using 

echo “- – -” > /sys/class/scsi_host/host?/scan

? :- Depend on you host number. 

2-  Use Fdisk to create new partition.

>fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 107.3 GB, 107374182400 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 13054 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
/dev/sda2              14       13054   104751832+  8e  Linux LVM
Disk /dev/sdb: 10.7 GB, 10737418240 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1305 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Disk /dev/sdb doesn’t contain a valid partition table

 Check the below :-

#fdisk /dev/sdb
Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun, SGI or OSF disklab el
Building a new DOS disklabel. Changes will remain in memory only,
until you decide to write them. After that, of course, the previous
content won’t be recoverable.

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 1305.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
Warning: invalid flag 0x0000 of partition table 4 will be corrected by w(rite)

Command (m for help): n

e extended
p primary partition (1-4)
Partition number (1-4): 1
First cylinder (1-1305, default 1):

Last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1-1305, default 1305):
Using default value 1305

Command (m for help): w
The partition table has been altered!

Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table.

WARNING: Re-reading the partition table failed with error 16: Device or resource busy.
The kernel still uses the old table.
The new table will be used at the next reboot.
Syncing disks.

3-  Lets start increasing :-

Now Let’s Extend :-

lvextend /dev/Oracle/LogVol00 /dev/sdb1 Extending logical volume LogVol00 to 19.72 GB
Logical volume LogVol00 successfully resized

 Finally :-

resize2fs /dev/Oracle/LogVol00resize2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
Filesystem at /dev/Oracle/LogVol00 is mounted on /; on-line resizing required
Performing an on-line resize of /dev/Oracle/LogVol00 to 5169152 (4k) blocks.

Notes :

  1. The Red Color for Command Line.
  2. The Brown Color For necessary Output. 
  3. /dev/Oracle/LogVol00 it’s the name for LVM Disk.
  4. /dev/sdb1 disk that we created using fdisk.

ORA-01031: insufficient privileges On ASM – Grid Infrastructure 11gR2

Today like any other day started with customer call , Telling me There is problem on Grid infrastructure after restarting both node, They change heartbeat from cables to connected on switch after i told them to do this.

The Error in the logs like the  below :-
CRS-5011:Check of resource “+ASM” failed: details at “(:CLSN00006:)”

Node #2 was running without any problem , the issue was with node #1 and nothing changed recently.

The Error in Node #1 :-

crsctl start cluster

PRCR-1079 : Failed to start resource ora.asm
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
CRS-5017: The resource action “ora.asm start” encountered the following error:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
. For details refer to “(:CLSN00107:)” in “/u01/app/grid/”.

as you see from the above error “ORA-01031: insufficient privileges” i was running this command as root.
After check node #1 the solution so simple :-

Under $GRID_HOME/network/admin
vi sqlnet.ora


which is wrong and to be changed to the following value :-


Reboot Node #1 and everything running successfully.
