FreeBSD growfs: operation not permitted (aka: enlarge your partition)
I recently upgrade my Droplet from 20 to 30 GiB space, yet I’m unable to resize my filesystem space in order to fill the new hard disk size. I have a FreeBSD 10.1 droplet.
I followed the instruction described by the official FreeBSD handbook: disk growing.
I executed the commands from single user mode.
The error occurs at the very final step:
growfs /dev/vtbd0p3 Operation not permitted
Anyone is aware of special actions to take care for DigitalOcean droplets?
Someone managed to increase the disk space?
Thank you very much.
