On all the compute nodes the default size for the VGExaDb-LVDbSys1 logical volume is 30GB. In the VG there is more than enough free space available.
I successfully resized the lv to 60GB.
After this I tried to resize the filesystem using the following command:
resize2fs -p /dev/VGExaDb/LVDbSys1
I got the following error:
resize2fs: operation not permitted while trying to add group #256
In the /var/log/messages file the following error was reported:
kernel: EXT3-fs warning (device dm-0): ext3_group_add: No reserved GDT blocks, can't resize
Upon checking the filesystem features I noticed that the resize_inodes feature is not installed:
tune2fs -l /dev/mapper/VGExaDb-LVDbSys1 |grep -i features
Filesystem features: has_journal filetype needs_recovery sparse_super
