I have created a nfs mount on my centos server that is 50GB in size, is it possible to adjust the size of the mount to something like 100GB or more? If so how would i go about that?

NFS isn't a real filesystem: it makes another filesystem (or part of one) available on the network. Are you trying to resize the filesystem which hosts your NFS-shared files? And if so, what type is it? – Alexios Mar 28 '12 at 23:17
I honestly don't remember, how do i tell? – awmusic12635 Mar 28 '12 at 23:44
Check your /etc/exports file to see what you're exporting, then, for an export of directory /foo/bar, say df -T /foo/bar and check the first two columns for the device name and filesystem type. The device name also impacts how (and whether or not you can) resize a filesystem. – Alexios Mar 29 '12 at 14:44
