Resizing LVM2 physical volumes

People keep running into situations where they’ve grown a block device (by repartitioning or md-fiddling) and want to grow the LVM2 physical volume on that device. Once when I wanted to do this, I managed to find a post to the linux-lvm mailing list explaining how to resize an LVM2 physical volume given that LVM2 has no pvresize. I’ve blogged it here so that I don’t have to remember the exact search terms to find it again, and hopefully Google will find it too and help others in the future.

    Since LVM 2.02.00, released on 10th November 2005, LVM2 has had pvresize.
