Depends on what OS you are using.  For RHEL4, you can use either
resize2fs (requires you to first run e2fsck), or (better choice) you can
also run ext2online, which doesn't require running e2fsck, but rather
resizes it online.

Subject: [Xen-users] domU lvm and resizing

Hi all,

I have my domU's on an lvm partition 68GB in size.  This is created from
1 pv - /dev/sdb1.  My domU's are 6GB in size.  Using lvextend or
lvresize on the domU partitions works nicely as lvdisplay shows the new
size.  However using df -h inside the domU still shows the original 6GB
size as does 
opening a share on the domU in a windows or linux client.   How do I get

the new size to be available in the domU?
