Cent OS Hyper-V WHM/cPanel server


I am using CentOS x64 6.0 on Hyper-V with integration services 3.0 installed.
WHM/Cpanel server is installed.

Currently I have a VHD with 750GB attached. But for some reason this:

Current Disk Usage

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg_st54-lv_root   50G  5.9G   41G  13% /
tmpfs                1000M     0 1000M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1             485M   64M  396M  14% /boot
/dev/mapper/vg_st54-lv_home   72G   72G     0 100% /home
/dev/loop0            485M   13M  447M   3% /tmp

I am getting messages while logging into cPanel that

The filesystem mounted at /home/username on this server is running out of disk space. cPanel operations have been temporarily suspended to prevent something bad from happening. Please ask your system admin to remove any files not in use on that partition.

Shouldn't the disk space expand automatically? Please help.

did you extend the VHD after installing the OS if so, then you would need to run fdisk first and format the free space as a linux partition and then use lvm commands to add the free space to the volume and then extend the volume

you can get some better idea from this link


skip the section where it talks about extending the disk using vmware-diskmanager
