How to resize OVH Public Cloud disk in CentOS 7 linux

I’m going to resize 100G SSD to 150GB SSD in Public Cloud

First I check the current mounted disk
[code lang=”shell”]
[[email protected] ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1 40G 2.4G 36G 7% /
devtmpfs 3.8G 0 3.8G 0% /dev
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 3.9G 17M 3.8G 1% /run
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs 780M 0 780M 0% /run/user/1000
/dev/vdb 99G 84G 9.7G 90% /mnt/data
[/code]

Then I’m going to umount it
[code lang=”shell”]
[[email protected] ~]# umount /dev/vdb
[[email protected] ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1 40G 2.4G 36G 7% /
devtmpfs 3.8G 0 3.8G 0% /dev
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 3.9G 17M 3.8G 1% /run
[/code]

I use the OVH interface to Backup first, then Detach the disk, and resize it to 150GB then Save.
And now back to the shell.

[code lang=”shell”]
[[email protected] ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/vda: 42.9 GB, 42949672960 bytes, 83886080 sectors

I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

[/code]
Use e2fsck to chekc the file systems.

[code lang=”shell”]
[[email protected] ~]# e2fsck /dev/vdb
e2fsck 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
/dev/vdb: clean, 62/6553600 files, 22382398/26214144 blocks

[[email protected] ~]# resize2fs /dev/vdb
resize2fs 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
Please run ‘e2fsck -f /dev/vdb’ first.

[[email protected] ~]# e2fsck -f /dev/vdb
e2fsck 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Pass 4: Checking reference counts
Pass 5: Checking group summary information
/dev/vdb: 62/6553600 files (56.5% non-contiguous), 22382398/26214144 blocks
[/code]

Resize using resize2fs

[code lang=”shell”]
[[email protected] ~]# resize2fs /dev/vdb
resize2fs 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
Resizing the filesystem on /dev/vdb to 39321600 (4k) blocks.
The filesystem on /dev/vdb is now 39321600 blocks long.
[/code]

Mount again to our system.

[code lang=”shell”]
[[email protected] ~]# mount /dev/vdb /mnt/data
[[email protected] ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1 40G 2.4G 36G 7% /
devtmpfs 3.8G 0 3.8G 0% /dev
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 3.9G 17M 3.8G 1% /run
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs 780M 0 780M 0% /run/user/1000
/dev/vdb 148G 84G 57G 60% /mnt/data
[/code]

You can see the Size increased.
Always backup before you do any change to disk.
Please take your own risk on these command in Linux.
