Hi, I have Ubuntu 16 (X64) as Virtual Machine. I want to encrease Swap file.
Now my /etc/fstab look as :
|# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options>||<dump> <pass>|
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
|UUID=957db1b8-37b0-438a-b5cc-4d299741689b /||ext4||errors=remount-ro 0||1|
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
I have created new swap file
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1G count=9
sudo mkswap /swapfile
Setting up swapspace version 1, size = 9 GiB (9629638656 bytes)
no label, UUID=fe9d9699-219e-4d28-bbac-f5b4337cb1c3
and want to change old UUID 674f8057-75bf-48f8-9279-5aa239b1fc9d to new fe9d9699-219e-4d28-bbac-f5b4337cb1c3
What correct way to do this? What correct vmloos command? Or this operation is possible to do in GUI?
