I am using an oraclelinux6 base box from http://github.com/oracle/vagrant-boxes.git for a development project.
after running $ vagrant up; vagrant ssh I switch to root by: $ sudo su and run $ fdisk
I see that the box contains 2 physical disks /dev/sda (39gb) and /dev/sdb (16gb). a volume group has been defined on /dev/sda2 which incorporates 37gb of the 39gb.
For my particular project, I need to have at least 128gb of diskspace for database etc.
What is the best way to resize /dev/sdb to 128GB so I have more than enough space.
BTW: for accessibility reasons I cannot use virtualbox's gui to resize the disk.
I tried the following: $ vagrant halt $ vboxmanage clonehd "disk2.vmdk" "cloned.vdi" --format vdi $ vboxmanage modifyhd "cloned.vdi" --resize 131072 $ vboxmanage clonehd "cloned.vdi" "disk2.vmdk" --existing $ vagrant up
When I run fdisk inside the vagrant box, /dev/sdb is still 16gb just like it was originally.
