Is there a way to shrink a volume? Running 2.2 now but with 2.3 and the changes to disk management/iSCSI it would be nice to be able to do it. Possibly removing a disk from a volume?
This post might be 1/2 support question and 1/2 possible feature request, but let's start with seeing if it's already possible.

Unfortunately, there is no official way to shrink the volume. I will forward your request to our R&D.

I've done it using the resize2fs command, but I would not recommend it
unless you have a good experience with Linux tools.

And was it on raid or just single disk? I am looking for a way to shrink volume too.
