PfSense 2.3.2 allocated disk not used for / filesystem?



  • Hello all,

    I noticed the root filesystem exhausting about 3% per day of available space so I decided to expand the volume of this ESXi host. The system now has the space but it not using it, did i miss a step somewhere?!?!

    Expanding the volume ain't enough. You need to expand the filesystem. Good luck with that. IOW, backup, reinstall and restore.
