I'm trying to extend a volume group in CentOS and it's being mean.

I've tried for about two hours... no luck.

Anyway, I need to extend VolGroup00 so it's not reporting 0 free PE. There's definitely plenty of PE available...

   --- Volume group ---
  VG Name               VolGroup00
  System ID
  Format                lvm2
  Metadata Areas        1
  Metadata Sequence No  3
  VG Access             read/write
  VG Status             resizable
  MAX LV                0
  Cur LV                2
  Open LV               2
  Max PV                0
  Cur PV                1
  Act PV                1
  VG Size               238.16 GB
  PE Size               32.00 MB
  Total PE              7621
  Alloc PE / Size       7621 / 238.16 GB
  Free  PE / Size       0 / 0
  VG UUID               6ys4Yt-3ZSp-namT-wKs2-dpZj-uBRh-vQ9YOA

I have 4 128GB SSDs in a RAID10 config if that matters.

In my calculations 4x128 GB in RAID10 is 256GB. This is what you got. How you plan to extend it when there are no Free PE available? – grs Sep 25 '12 at 23:45
Please provide more details, what partitions do you have, what did you try, e.t.c. – Serge Sep 25 '12 at 23:46
