Expanding Airwave file system

    Hello. We installed Airwave using the OVA file and it all works fine. However, the image only allowed for a 80ish GB file system. There are a couple of spare TBs on the virtual disk. Any suggestions on how we go about resizing the airwave install?

    Is this a new install?  If so, you can power off the VM instance, then edit the instance's settings to expand allocated disk space.  Once that's done, power back on the VM instance, the change of disk space should be reflected when you call:

    # df -h

    Thanks but it didn't work. The file system didn't change in size. What we had to do was something along the lines of delete the partition from inside airwave, recreate the partition, pvresize then lvresize. Only managed to get it wrong once and corrupt the filesystem :-)
