    Hey guys, im currently running Parallels Plesk 10.1.1 on a Linux/Unix based system. I am currently getting an error from the server health monitor. Its saying there is a problem with the /var and /usr partitions on the server. I have called my provider and they told me to use LVM to extend the disks. I followed the steps in their FAQ and i've extended the disks, but Plesk doesnt seem to be able to pick up that the size of the disks is now above 3.99GB, below is what plesk is showing:

    As you can see Plesk says the /var partition is 166.2% used, meaning the system knows there is more than 3.99GB available it just hasn't updated it, and likewise for the /usr partition.

    I have the /var partition set to 14GB
    I have the /usr partition set to 8GB

    Has anyone else come across this problem?

    Does anyone know how to resolve it?

    All help would be grateful

    Thanks

    Byron

    I've found a fix for it!

    If anyone is experiencing the same issue go to your SSH terminal, login as root and run the following command

    /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/scripts/setup-health-monitor.php

    This resets the values within the Health Monitor and updates the new partition space values!

    Slightly better instructions on fixing logical drive size

    I ran into this problem and it took me hours to find the right answer.

    First I had to resize my /var and /usr logical drives because Plesk showed them as full (they were only set to 3.99 gb)

    Follow this very easy tutorial for changing the logical volume/drive size:
    http://faq.1and1.com/dedicated_servers/root_server/linux_admin_help/17.html


    Now to update Plesk health monitor afterwards, run this:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/scripts/setup-health-monitor.php
