This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to add new partitions which are not logical volumes. But I have a system with logical volumes. I tried reducing the lv_home partition size using ‘lvresize’, and reduced a LV size by 5GB successfully. And I want to create new partition with that 5GB. But I am not able to find that space.
xvda 202:0 0 150G 0 disk ├─xvda1 202:1 0 500M 0 part /boot └─xvda2 202:2 0 149.5G 0 part ├─VolGroup-lv_root (dm-0) 253:0 0 50G 0 lvm / ├─VolGroup-lv_swap (dm-1) 253:1 0 3.9G 0 lvm [SWAP] └─VolGroup-lv_home (dm-2) 253:2 0 90.6G 0 lvm /home
I reduced lv_home from 95 to 90GB. Now where this free space is available?. When I tried to make partion using "fdisk xvda" it says no free sectors. I want to create 2 or 3 partitions using that 5GB. Would some one help me in doing that?
