Hi , I want to double check this lesson in the LFS 201 trainning

Lesson 16.8 Examples of Resizing

$ sudo

$ sudo lvextend -r -L +500M /dev/vg/mylvm

$ sudo lvreduce -r -L -200M /dev/vg/mylvm

lvreduce -r -L +200M /dev/vg/mylvm ?

    As to what happens with your lvreduce command, try it and you'll find out.

    fsadm does not resize the partition, only the filesystem size.
    so you would have to run lvextend and then fsadm, or fsadm
    and then lvreduce in that order, instead.
