Non logical disk expansion data disk (xfs and ext2, 3, 4)

Because of the lack of data disk, it is necessary to expand the partition, but it is very complex to use LVM without logical partition
Warning: data disk needs to be unloaded for capacity expansion, but data will not be affected (if it is important or afraid of loss, please back up first)
Ideas:
1. Unload the data disk
2.fdisk expansion
3. Repair the disk
4. Mount the disk
5. Expand disk
Here is the xfs disk expansion
(1) Unload data disk

[root@localhost ~]# umount /dev/vdc1

(2) fdisk expansion

[root@door_application ~]# fdisk /dev/vdc
Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.23.2).

Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.
Be careful before using the write command.

Command (m for help): d
Selected partition 1
Partition 1 is deleted

Command (m for help): n
Partition type:
   p   primary (0 primary, 0 extended, 4 free)
   e   extended
Select (default p): 
Using default response p
Partition number (1-4, default 1): 
First sector (2048-41943039, default 2048): 
Using default value 2048
Last sector, +sectors or +size{K,M,G} (2048-41943039, default 41943039): 
Using default value 41943039
Partition 1 of type Linux and of size 20 GiB is set

Command (m for help): w
The partition table has been altered!

Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table.
Syncing disks.

(3) Repair disk

[root@door_application ~]# xfs_repair /dev/vdc1 
Phase 1 - find and verify superblock...
Phase 2 - using internal log
        - zero log...
        - scan filesystem freespace and inode maps...
        - found root inode chunk
Phase 3 - for each AG...
        - scan and clear agi unlinked lists...
        - process known inodes and perform inode discovery...
        - agno = 0
        - agno = 1
        - agno = 2
        - agno = 3
        - agno = 4
        - agno = 5
        - agno = 6
        - agno = 7
        - process newly discovered inodes...
Phase 4 - check for duplicate blocks...
        - setting up duplicate extent list...
        - check for inodes claiming duplicate blocks...
        - agno = 0
        - agno = 1
        - agno = 2
        - agno = 3
        - agno = 4
        - agno = 5
        - agno = 6
        - agno = 7
Phase 5 - rebuild AG headers and trees...
        - reset superblock...
Phase 6 - check inode connectivity...
        - resetting contents of realtime bitmap and summary inodes
        - traversing filesystem ...
        - traversal finished ...
        - moving disconnected inodes to lost+found ...
Phase 7 - verify and correct link counts...
done

(4) Mount disk

[root@door_application ~]# mount -a

(5) Expand disk

[root@door_application ~]# xfs_growfs /dev/vdc1 
meta-data=/dev/vdc1              isize=512    agcount=8, agsize=655360 blks
         =                       sectsz=512   attr=2, projid32bit=1
         =                       crc=1        finobt=0 spinodes=0
data     =                       bsize=4096   blocks=5242624, imaxpct=25
         =                       sunit=0      swidth=0 blks
naming   =version 2              bsize=4096   ascii-ci=0 ftype=1
log      =internal               bsize=4096   blocks=2560, version=2
         =                       sectsz=512   sunit=0 blks, lazy-count=1
realtime =none                   extsz=4096   blocks=0, rtextents=0

There are different commands for ext4 disk expansion except for repair and expansion

e2fsck -f disk name
 resize2fs disk name
