Solusvm virt-resize fails on the Centos 6
Virt-resize is a tool which can resize a virtual machine disk, making it larger or smaller overall, and resizing or deleting any partitions contained within.
At times, creation of KVM VPS fails on CentOS 6 KVM node due to failed virt-resize process:
libguestfs: trace: launch = 0 Expanding /dev/sda1 using the ‘resize2fs’ method … libguestfs: trace: resize2fs “/dev/sda1” libguestfs: trace: resize2fs = -1 (error) Fatal error: exception Guestfs.Error(“resize2fs: e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) /dev/sda1 has unsupported feature(s): 64bit e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!”) libguestfs: trace: close
You can check the version of e2fsck tool by running the below command:
#e2fsck -V e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) Using EXT2FS Library version 1.41.12, 17-May-2010
Cause for Solusvm virt-resize fails on the Centos 6
e2fsck is a tool that helps you recover your file system and restore your Linux system to usable state.
e2fsck checks for ext2/ext3/ext4 for errors and repair them accordingly.
However, this error may happen when the e2fsck 1.41.12 that is available for CentOS 6 does not support 64-bit feature.
