Howto:Extend V10 Linux Application Platform HDD Size (VM)
This information applies to
- LinuxAP, V10
V10 LinuxAP will have default HDD Size of 8GB. In most scenarios, this is sufficient. Sometimes you need more space and have to extend HDD storage.
root@vmware-debian:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on rootfs 6.8G 6.8G 0M 100% / udev 10M 0 10M 0% /dev tmpfs 101M 156K 101M 1% /run /dev/sda3 6.8G 6.8G 0M 100% / tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 305M 0 305M 0% /run/shm
If you use a virtual machine (HyperV / VMWare) you can increase the storage space. (If you use a LinuxAP on a CF-Card or FlashDisk you have to perform a fresh installation on a larger storage medium)
In this howto we show the HyperV steps. VMWware is similar.
- Download GParted Live CD
- Remove all existing Snapshots
- Create a fresh Fullbackup of your Machine. Important: Please remember that you will change partitions and file system. An error can mean a total loss of data!
- Shutdown LinuxAP
- Extend VM HHD Size to your needs in VM settings
- Mount GParted iso in VM settings
- Open Console, Start VM and load GParted
- Extend Partition and Filesystem
- Shutdown and unmount GParted iso in VM settings
- Start VM and check available diskspace
