Re: [Starcluster] enlarge volume

Ah, perhaps I've answered my own question. Having created the larger
volume, I simply started a cluster with that volume attached.

It looks like it already sees the larger volume without my having to
re-write the partition table, or do something like grow_volume. is this

I ran fdisk -l :

[root_at_domU-12-31-39-0C-DC-22 home]# fdisk -l


Disk /dev/sdz: 536.8 GB, 536870912000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 65270 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdz1 1 2610 20964824+ 83 Linux

Does this completely confirm that the larger 500 GB volume is completely
"seen"? (And if so, does this mean that nothing like resize2fs or
xfs_growfs is necessary?)

Thanks -- and again, sorry for the ignorant / OT questions
