SolusVM CentOS 7 KVM Templates Server Disk Space Incorrect

SolusVM CentOS 7 KVM Templates Server Disk Space Incorrect

 

On some SolusVM KVM CentOS 7 virtual servers once created you may encounter a space issue. Virtual servers are created with the wrong space allowance. Typically, about 2-5GB is assigned to the VM. This is because SolusVM is not resizing the space correctly on creation.

In our example, you can see we have created a CentOS 7 KVM server with 50GB of space but actually once created the server only has just under 5GB allocated to it

This was reported to SolusVM on 23rd February 2017. As of yet, no fix has been provided for the error but we do have a workaround. Login to your server as the root user and issue the below command. This will resize your disk and give you the correct space allocation.

resize2fs /dev/vda1

Your hard drive should be /dev/vda1 if it’s not just swap that for your actual hard drive which you can find by issuing fdisk -l

 

This issue has been patched on our images for our customers but may still exist for other providers as no official fix has been released by SolusVM
