KVM VPS disk space does not correspond to allocated amount after VPS creation in SolusVM.


  • The following error is produced when trying to deploy a VPS partition using virt-resize utility:

    # virt-resize -d --resize-force /dev/sda2=2048M --expand /dev/sda1 /home/solusvm/kvm/template/linux-debian-9-x86_64-minimal-latest.gz /dev/solusvm/kvm101_img
    virt-resize: error: libguestfs error: resize2fs: e2fsck 1.42.9
    /dev/sda1 has unsupported feature(s): metadata_csum
    e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!

e2fsprogs version earlier than 1.43 does not support metadata_csum feature.


Update e2fsprogs using the below steps:

  1. Connect to KVM node via SSH

  2. Install onapp repository:

    # wget http://cdn.rpm.repo.onapp.com/repo/OnApp-hosters.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/OnApp-hosters.repo

  3. Remove the current package ignoring dependencies:

    # rpm -e --nodeps e2fsprogs

  4. Install the package back(it will be installed from the repo installed in step 1):

    # yum install e2fsprogs

  5. Make sure the package has newer version:

    # rpm -qa e2fsprogs

  6. Remove onapp repository:

    # rm -f /etc/yum.repos.d/OnApp-hosters.repo
