I have written an rc.d script growfs that is in HEAD that makes this painless... If you have a single UFS fs, w/ the root as the last partition/fs on the disk, simply grow the disk, and then you can run "service growfs start", and it just works... This will work on any system, not just VMs... -- John-Mark Gurney Voice: +1 415 225 5579 "All that I will do, has been done, All that I have, has not." _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
