I recently installed RHEL 4 in a Server Machine , created one partition for "boot " and rest as LVM .
In LVM I created Logical volumes like 535 GB / and 200 GB /home . After Installed OS and configured some servers on it . I got a situation like we need to reduce Logical volume " / " partition size 535 GB to 500 GB . I did this using lvreduce command but by mmistake I given only 5 GB space first time afterthat I extented " / " logical volume in to +500 GB . Now its 505GB , but when I tried to do lvdispay its not showing the size . After that I rebooted my server its not booting , giving Kernel Panic error .
In rescue mode i used "chroot /mnt/sysimage " command and its giving me error "Permission Denied ". I tried to do " e2fsck /dev/vol/log02 "command and its also giving me same error .
Please advise with a best solution to make server up .
