How to expand storage allocation

storage

(Dan F) #1

I’m trying to allocate more storage to my pool. When I initially setup, I used 45g and I’d like to expand this amount.

I found this: https://github.com/lxc/lxd/blob/master/doc/storage.md and ran the commands at the bottom for growing a loop backend ZFS pool. I’m now showing this:

root@lxd:~# zpool list
NAME SIZE ALLOC FREE EXPANDSZ FRAG CAP DEDUP HEALTH ALTROOT
default 167G 2.75G 164G - 3% 1% 1.00x ONLINE -
root@lxd:~# lxc storage show default
config:
size: 45GB
source: /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/disks/default.img
zfs.pool_name: default
description: “”
name: default
driver: zfs

How come the “default” is still showing 45g but the pool is now 167g?

That size property can be ignored, it’s the size which was requested at creation time, if the pool is grown later this doesn’t change.
