VMware - redhat 6, properly removing a mounted drive, and remounting
Posted on 2015-01-02
/extra is 40GB. I need /extra to be /700GB
This is on a server running as a virtual.
I'm going to umount /extra
remove the entry in fstab
/dev/extra/extra /extra ext4 defaults 0 0
Then I'm going to shutdown the VM. Delete the 40GB drive. Recreate the drive with the new size 700GB
Then I'll turn back on the VM, and recreate /extra
The question is, are there other caveats to look out for, before I recreate /extra. Is there other things I need to remove in other locations on the redhat OS, before recreating /extra again?
