I made a backup which took hours to copy, used cryptsetup with the same password as the original disk, then pvcreate etc. to create the physical volume and add the new drive. Then I used resize2fs while the system was mounted and ended up with my 2Tb added to my system. It all went completely smoothly and I started questioning myself for wasting hours doing the backup.
Then I rebooted. Ah. I was prompted to enter the password of the original drive as usual but then got a message saying:
- Code: Select all
Couldn't find devive with uuid xxxxxetc
Found volume group "jua" using metadata type lvm2
Refusing activation of partial LV group root.
Then it drops me out to busybox.
I've clearly missed a step somewhere. I think I need a way of telling my system to prompt for the password of the second (new) disk. But I don't know where to add this from within the busybox environment.
Can anyone help me to get started?
