GMS attachments - relocate to new volume

We are running out of disk space. The server is a virtual and we can add disk with vsphere easy enough, but re-sizing the existing volume is not working. the volume is "busy" - - it is the only volume.

Is there any way to move (relocate) the attachments to a new volume ?

    Another option is to boot to a GParted ISO and use it to expand the
    volume. This is how I've been doing it on the smaller deployments or
    where ever we undersized root.

    1. Gparted needs to be available in every VMWare deployment ready to boot.

  • I'll third that one. I've used it across our virtual environments where
    I've undersized linux volumes. The other solution is mount points as in
    the earlier posted KB. We generally don't use LVM.
