how to expand root volume size
I have created a volume that is 10 GB. so now I want to merge this 10GB volume to my root volume. my root volume size is 25 GB so the storage accessible under root / how can I do that?
root@test:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 481M 0 481M 0% /dev tmpfs 99M 592K 98M 1% /run /dev/vda1 25G 989M 24G 5% / tmpfs 493M 0 493M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 493M 0 493M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/vda15 105M 3.6M 101M 4% /boot/efi /dev/sda 9.8G 37M 9.3G 1% /mnt/volume_blr1_02 tmpfs 99M 0 99M 0% /run/user/0
As you can see the additional storage volume is added as separate mount point as:
/dev/sda 9.8G 37M 9.3G 1% /mnt/volume_blr1_02
What I want is, total 35GB storage accessible under root / how can I do that?
