How to resize Physical volume and shrink disk partition

I Installed proxmox environment on Intel 240GB SSD. Installation take the whole disk for lvm. So I need to reduce the used space and create a new partition for drbd.
This is my disk. You can see, that the disk is full allocated with 171G free.

root@pve1:/# gdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 468862128 sectors, 223.6 GiB
Number Start (sector) End (sector) Size Code Name
 1      34          2047        1007.0  KiB EF02
 2      2048        262143      127.0   MiB EF00
 3      262144      111411199   53.0    GiB 8E00 Linux LVM
root@pve1:/# pvs
 PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 223.44g 171.44g
root@pve1:/# vgs
 VG #PV #LV #SN Attr VSize VFree
 pve 1 3 0 wz--n- 223.44g 171.44g
root@pve1:/# lvs
 LV VG Attr LSize Pool Origin Data% Move Log Copy% Convert
 data pve -wi-ao--- 40.00g
 root pve -wi-ao--- 10.00g
 swap pve -wi-ao--- 2.00g

So, we list our logical volumes with segments on physical volume /dev/sda3:

root@pve1:/# pvs -v --segments /dev/sda3
 Using physical volume(s) on command line
 PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree Start SSize LV Start Type PE Ranges
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 223.44g 171.44g 0 512 swap 0 linear /dev/sda3:0-511
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 223.44g 171.44g 512 2560 root 0 linear /dev/sda3:512-3071
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 223.44g 171.44g 3072 10240 data 0 linear /dev/sda3:3072-13311
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 223.44g 171.44g 13312 43889 0 free

We can see, the size of PV is 223,44G and we have free 171,44G. So, we must shrink this physical volume about 171,44G. So compute the space for size of this physical volume: 223,44 – 171,44 = 52G. So, our PV must have at least 52G. Next, we resize this pv:

root@pve1:/# pvresize --setphysicalvolumesize 52G /dev/sda3
 /dev/sda3: cannot resize to 13311 extents as 13312 are allocated.
 0 physical volume(s) resized / 1 physical volume(s) not resized
root@pve1:/# pvresize --setphysicalvolumesize 52.1G /dev/sda3
 Physical volume "/dev/sda3" changed
 1 physical volume(s) resized / 0 physical volume(s) not resized

As we can see, we cannost shrink exact to this space. So we add 100M and use the 52,1G size. Now we can see:

root@pve1:/# pvs -v --segments /dev/sda3
 Using physical volume(s) on command line
 PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree Start SSize LV Start Type PE Ranges
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 52.10g 100.00m 0 512 swap 0 linear /dev/sda3:0-511
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 52.10g 100.00m 512 2560 root 0 linear /dev/sda3:512-3071
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 52.10g 100.00m 3072 10240 data 0 linear /dev/sda3:3072-13311
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 52.10g 100.00m 13312 25 0 free

At this point, we must work on the lowest layer of disk, so we must delete this partition and create a new one. The new partition must start on the same sector as previous and the last sector must be after last segment of physical volume. I use gdisk, because my disk have GPT partition table:

root@pve1:/# gdisk /dev/sda
Command (? for help): p

OK; writing new GUID partition table (GPT) to /dev/sda.
Warning: The kernel is still using the old partition table.
The new table will be used at the next reboot.
The operation has completed successfully.

Now, we must reboot our computer to use new partition table. And after reboot, use this command to resize physical volume on partition /dev/sda3

root@pve1:/# pvresize /dev/sda3
 Physical volume "/dev/sda3" changed
 1 physical volume(s) resized / 0 physical volume(s) not resized
root@pve1:/# pvs
 PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 53.00g 1020.00m

Now, if we can use all of free space for the logical volume “data”, we can resize it to whole free space, like this:

root@pve1:/# lvresize /dev/pve/data -l +100%FREE
 Extending logical volume data to 41.00 GiB
 Logical volume data successfully resized
 root@pve1:/# lvs
 LV VG Attr LSize Pool Origin Data% Move Log Copy% Convert
 data pve -wi-ao--- 41.00g
 root pve -wi-ao--- 10.00g
 swap pve -wi-ao--- 2.00g
root@pve1:/# pvs
 PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree
 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 53.00g 0

Now, we can create a new partition at the end of disk:

gdisk /dev/sda
Command (? for help): p
Disk /dev/sda: 468862128 sectors, 223.6 GiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes

 2 2048 262143 127.0 MiB EF00

Command (? for help): n
Partition number (4-128, default 4):

Last sector (111411200-468862094, default = 468862094) or {+-}size{KMGTP}:
Current type is 'Linux filesystem'
Hex code or GUID (L to show codes, Enter = 8300):

Command (? for help): w

OK; writing new GUID partition table (GPT) to /dev/sda.
Warning: The kernel is still using the old partition table.
The new table will be used at the next reboot.
The operation has completed successfully.
root@pve1:~# gdisk -l /dev/sda

 4     111411200      468862094    170.4 GiB    8300 Linux filesystem

And if we list details about physical volume, we can see, that there is no free space:

root@pve1:~# pvs -v --segments /dev/sda3
 Using physical volume(s) on command line
 PV VG Fmt Attr PSize PFree Start SSize LV Start Type PE Ranges

 /dev/sda3 pve lvm2 a-- 53.00g 0 3072 10495 data 0 linear /dev/sda3:3072-13566

And what is drbd, you can see in another post on my page. Have a fun.
