vgextend – add physical volumes to a volume group

vgextend [-A/–autobackup y/n] [-d/–debug] [-h/-?/–help] [-t/–test]
[-v/–verbose] VolumeGroupName PhysicalDevicePath [PhysicalDevi-
cePath…]

vgextend allows you to add one or more initialized physical volumes ( see pvcreate ) to an existing volume group to extend it in size.

Examples

“vgextend vg00 /dev/sda4 /dev/sdn1” tries to extend the existing volume
group “vg00” by the new physical volumes (see pvcreate(8) ) “/dev/sdn1″
and /dev/sda4”.
