Currently running PrismCentral pc.2021.3.0.2
After upgrading to this version, the /home partition is supposed to expand to 50gb from 40gb. This unfortunately did not happen.
I found KB9525, and tried to run this command to manually expand the partition:
sudo python /usr/local/nutanix/bootstrap/bin/pc_config_home_partition.py --skip_end_sector_validation
That didn’t succeed in expanding the /home partition (which was sitting at 91% utilisation)
In the pc_config_home_partition.log file, I found this error:
:178 BLKRRPART: Device or resource busy
sfdisk: The command to re-read the partition table failed.
Run partprobe(8), kpartx(8) or reboot your system now, before using mkfs
I ran partprobe, didn’t help
kpartx requires parameters, and I wasnt sure what inputs to provide, so I didn’t run that
I did reboot Prism Central, but that didn’t help either, except it did somehow reduce disk utilisation of /home to 76% from 91%. Still couldn’t expand the disk though
Anyone faced a similar situation, or have any insights?

If youre still facing the issue, I would suggest please open a case with Nutanix Support and we would be happy to help you.
I did get the help I needed from Nutanix Support (I was originally hoping it would be a simple fix that someone here could share).
All good now
