Hello all,

In your view, what is the most reliable and safe way to increase an LV
housing the root filesystem of a Centos 6 VM. I am thinking either growing
the virtual HD virtual device, or creating a new device and adding it as a
PV to the VM, or perhaps migrating the whole FS to a new virtual disk.

Any input on how best to proceed would be appreciated.
