I'm trying to concatenate two disk using vinum on FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE and
want to make sure I am doing everything correctly.
I have two drives, a 30 gig and a 40 gig. I have vinum setup and running
on the 40 gig right now. I would like to copy information from the 30 gig
to the 40 gig, Then concatenate the 30 gig to the 40 gig and use growfs to
have one 70 gig "drive."
I know that on 5.0R growfs would not work with a vinum volume. I found a
bug report (1) saying it was fixed but am unsure if this means it was
included in 5.1R.
Assuming growfs will work all I should have to do is change the drive's
label using bsdlabel, make a new config file for the new drive, read it
in, set the state as up, start the plex, unmount the filesystem, use
growfs, the remount. Correct?
