    what about mount points that are multi-path? can you safely extend them?

    better use:
    xfs_growfs /dev/mapper/vg_cloud-LogVol00

    Hi! First of all thanks for sharing this post. I use LVM almost everywhere!
    I would like to add that, you can add a “-r” in the end of the line where you extend the LV. Example:
    # lvextend -L +2G /dev/mapper/vg_cloud-LogVol00 -r

    If you do that, there is no necessity of resize2fs command!
    Cheers!
