Increase Storage of the VMThe VM we deliver includes a 20Gbytes storage.
To increase the storage of the VM (very likely because your database get larger), you must first add a virtual disk to the VM, then extends the volume group, extend the logical volume and resize the file system.
Even if this may sound complicated it's actually very easy and can be done in just a couple of minutes.
Stop your XStudio VM and back it upFor instance, if you're using VirtualBox, clone the VM.
Add a new virtual physical drive to the VMYou can do this from VirtualBox or VMWare's Graphical User Interface. In the following, let's imagine you added a new virtual disk of 20Bytes.
Check that the new physical drive is accessibleConnect as root using ssh (i.e. using putty) and issue the following commands:
the new disk should appear in the list as /dev/sdb and you should see a message at the end stating:
Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table
Create a partition on this new disk
Writing physical volume data to disk "/dev/sdb" Physical volume "/dev/sdb" successfully created
Extend the volume group
vgextend turnkey /dev/sdb
Volume group "turnkey" successfully extended
Extend the logical volume
lvextend -L+20G /dev/mapper/turnkey-root
Extending logical volume root to 40.00 GiB Logical volume root successfully resized
Resize the file system

The filesystem on /dev/mapper/turnkey-root is now 14942208 blocks long.
