Extending a Logical Volume Group

Introduction

Today I ran into the situation where I needed to extend a logical volume group so I could complete an installation. I’d already installed the Grid Infrastructure, but there wasn’t enough room remaining to install the Oracle kernel on the same device. This is for a test environment which was being built on a VM that had just been created, and performance is not the issue we’re looking at here, so installing the Grid Infrastructure and RDBMS on the same device is not a concern for me. I’ve been around the Oracle database for way too many years, but my sysadmin skills leave a lot to be desired, so I did what anyone in this situation would do – I googled “resize volume linux” and followed someone else’s instructions.
