Windows 10 & Docker: volumes not working

Make sure you have your firewall settings correct and issues with File/Print-Sharing fixed. Follow the article .

For me following commands is necessary (since some parts are managed by corporate sys-admins and AD). (So that the Docker is moved into the private network category, where the firewall rules can be applied.)

LVM: increase size of existing logical volumes without reboot/new partition

Sometimes it is necessary to increase the size of your logical volume but you cannot/want reboot and/or create a new partition.

  1. Increase the hard disk space by allocating it on the host system to the your virtual machine
  2. echo 1>/sys/class/block/sdaX/device/rescan so that you VM knows the new hard disk capacity
  3. use parted (or your personal preference) to increase the partition size
    • Tip: run unit kb in parted for a more precise aligning of the partitions
    • Tip 2: keep in mind that you have to increase both logical parition and lvm flagged partition. Logical partitions are like containers for the lvm flagged partition.
  4. Increase LVM Physical device: pvresize /dev/sdX
  5. Increase LVM Logical Volume: lvextend -l+100%FREE /dev/mapper/XX
  6. Increase FileSystem: resize2fs /dev/mapper/XX
