I am using ClarkConnect
, a great all in one firewall/proxy server/file server/SMTP gateway/etc. It uses RedHat I believe. I had a 200GB hard drive in this which I wanted to resize to 500GB. Attempting to do this is deep into undocumented territory. I have spent 2 days on this. I really want to make this work but am close to giving up.
Steps taken so far:
Cloned 200GB disk to 500GB disk.
Installed 500GB drive and verified machine continues to operate.
Booted using a GParted Live CD
, then used GParted to create an additional partition in the free space.
Then attempted to resize following the 'The resize test procedure' section in this Red Hat Knowledgebase article
This is my current state of play:
/dev/hda2 was the existing partition
VolGroup00 was the existing volume group
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 was the existing logical volume

Attempting to use ext2online results in:
ext2online v.1.1.18 - 2001/03/18 for EXT2FS 0.5b
ext2online: new size is same as current (485455792)
Can anyone provide any assistance on a way forward with this?
