Shutdown the VM. zfs set volsize=15G tank/bhyve/virt03 zfs rename tank/bhyve/virt03 tank/bhyve/virtxx gpart recover zvol/tank/bhyve/virtxx zfs rename tank/bhyve/virtxx tank/bhyve/virt03 # this is not the exact size, sorry gpart resize -i1 -s15359M zvol/tank/bhyve/virt03 growfs /dev/zvol/tank/bhyve/virt03p1 Start VM The renaming step was necessary so that GEOM picks up the new zvol size (this was on 10.0-RELEASE, might work without this on CURRENT). You might want to make a backup before doing this. -- Michael Gmelin _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
