Photon OS 1.x /root partition full

Ran into an issue today in which our gitlab server running in a docker container using VMware’s photonOS 1.x ran out of disk space on the /root partition by default this partition is only ~15GB; while the container was still running and I could log into gitlab I couldn’t clone any repos. The solution, simply add space to the disk in vCenter and boot the VM into GParted live an extend /dev/sda1 in my case, reboot, and all was good Thank goodness for GParted Live.
