Remove ^M (Control-M) characters from a file in Unix

When checking my /etc/multipath.conf file, there was a lot of hidden characters ^M at the end of lines

root@linux:~ # cat -vet /etc/multipath.conf

To remove them, use tr and redirect the output to a new file.

root@linux:~ # tr -d ‘\015’ /tmp/multipath.conf

Check the file and if everything is okay, replace the original file

LVM: Please specify number of stripes (-i) and stripesize (-I)

I tried to resize a logical volume but showed a message to specify stripes and stripesize

root@linux:~ # lvresize -L +200g -r /dev/vgER0data/lv_sapdata1
Please specify number of stripes (-i) and stripesize (-I)
Run `lvresize –help’ for more information.

Showing stripes and stripesize

To solve the problem in this case it was necessary to add a new LUN and resize the logical volume. The segment where it is linear, was kept this way. There is no way to convert
