AWS Cloud

SUSE linux server 11 sp3

I have added large 1000GB AWS SSD volume to my SUSE linux hana master on our a 3 node multi-host hana system.

mkfs.xfs /dev/xvdg

fdisk /dev/xvdg

##Added one primary partition of type 8e - LVM

pvcreate /dev/xvdg

vgextend vghanaback /dev/xvdg

lvextend -L+900G /dev/vghanaback/lvhanaback

Using stripesize of last segment 256.00 KiB

  Extending logical volume lvhanaback to 1.36 TiB

  Insufficient suitable allocatable extents for logical volume lvhanaback: 227330 more required

Have tried to use YaST with no success.

Any insight would be great.. Cannot take backups as it is filling volume 100%
