Sorry for my ignorance.
When I create xen virtual machines on lvm I need to create a
filesystem on lvm container?
assuming you're using LVs as your root and swap devices, yes
I'm italian and my english is very bad.
If I've understood well xen-tools create the LV, then the filesystem
on it and then put the VM image.
So if I set, for example, 50G for my VM disk space and later I need
more space I simply do lvextend on the LV and then resize2fs, then
change the parameter on the VM config file, for example 100G, and
simply restart the VM.
That's basically it. I don't think you have to change anything in the config file if you resize the LV later, but I've never actually played with resizing volumes.
