Increase the Size of Root Filesystem of a Database Cloud (DBaaS) Instance

(Doc ID 2344382.1)

Last updated on JULY 12, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

There is a documented procedure to increase the size of a storage volume (including root volume) for an IaaS instance. However, this functionality is not available for a DBaaS instance. This document outlines steps to increase the size of the root filesystem of a Database Cloud instance. This document assumes that the root filesystem is LVM based. If this is not the case, do not follow the instructions in this document and contact Oracle Support for assistance.

Note : OCI Classic supports only 10 block storage volumes attached to a compute node. If you have reached the limit, you would not be able to use this procedure.
