Hi Folks,

Our server crashed over the weekend. We have 3 containers. The most heavily used
container shows this when issuing df -h inside the container

/dev/simfs 1.8T (size) 1.8T (used) Avail 990M 100% / mounted
none 2.0G (size) 4.0K (used) 2.0G 1%
none 2.0G (size) 8.0K (used) 2.0G 1%

How do I increase the size of /dev/simfs ?

I stopped the container, deleted the quota file and started it. This got the container up.

I just can't figure out how to increase the size of the file system.
