I was playing with a small OPNsense VM when, during a major upgrade, the disk was suddenly full. If you ever create a OPNsense VM, here are the spec you should set :
- 2 vCPU
- 1GB RAM
- 5GB disk
Boot is BIOS/MBR, in my case the disk was emulated SCSI. The network interface can use
Resize the disk on the hypervisor side, then reboot the VM or use
camcontrol rescan all to refresh the SCSI bus (untested).
Now we’re ready for the resize dance:
# let's look at the partition layout gpart show # fix GPT partition table after disk extend gpart recover da0 # now extend the partition to all available space gpart resize -i 3 da0 # and grow the UFS filesystem growfs /dev/gpt/rootfs
UFS is a bit confused if you specify the partition path, so be careful to use the mountpoint so it can detect the mounted partition and do an online grow.
growfs /dev/da0p3 # error growfs /dev/gpt/rootfs # ok
