Anyone have luck expanding the root for Expedition?

I am trying to expand the root of expedition since 18g is not enough when you start loading up data into projects so it keeps yelling at me for space. 

 

Tried following this http://www.geoffstratton.com/expand-hard-disk-ubuntu-lvm

 

But get error:

 

expedition@pan-expedition:~$ sudo pvcreate /dev/sda3

  Device /dev/sda3 not found (or ignored by filtering).

expedition@pan-expedition:~$ pvcreate /dev/sda3

  WARNING: Running as a non-root user. Functionality may be unavailable.

  /run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: Permission denied

  WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning.

  /run/lock/lvm/P_orphans:aux: open failed: Permission denied

  Can't get lock for orphan PVs

Re: Anyone have luck expanding the root for Expedition?

Ok I figured it out. There are a few things missing in most articles I have found for resizing root volumes. 

 

 

 

You have to use pvresize to achieve this.

 

I will create an article on how to do this.

The recommendation is to add and mount a second disk to expand the traffic log storage.
