    Thought you could just run lvm_manager from expert...

    Yes - I've ran lvm_manager from expert and it's worked fine.

    So ignoring the lvm question, for some reason checkpoint seems to make the boot menu timeout zero on VM based machines (maybe others as well?).

    /boot/grub/menu.1st

    change

    timeout=0

    to

    timeout=4

    Now you can hit escape during the count down and see the maintenance mode option.

    lvm_manager works for me in expert but only the lv_current partition resizes successfully. the log partition always has a process interfering with the resize process and recommends i rerun the command in maintenance mode. thank you both for your interest in helping me out here.

    Does anyone know if this is still true with R80.10 ?
