other question what is the best open source backup solutions
Regards,

Hi

In your post i didn’t found any disk related to /dev/sda1, without having disk /dev/sda1 how you will extend the volumegroup, first of all add any new disk to your server and partition it don’t format it just partition it
after that create the physical volume by using pvcreate

#pvcreate /dev/sda1

now extend the volumegroup

#vgextend VolGroup /dev/sda1

and also once post the output of

#pvs #vgs #lvs

You can use rsnapshot for tacking backup
