Trying to find a way to resize a volume group on a Centos5.1 system

I recently installed a Centos5.1 system and followed the partitioning scheme of a developer working on the project. I have a 750G drive to work with but not thinking I would need more space in the Volume Group based on the worst case for the LVs I set the size for the VG at 200G. The developers I am delivering to now say that they need 2 partitions (/u and /data) to be 100G each. I have not found an elegant way to resize the volume group to at least 400G or more. I tried resizing the PV in the hopes that resizing the second partition to 100G would cause the VG to expand into the free space of the PV but that didn't work.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.

Why don't you just create 2 100G partitions and mount them at /u and /data? That seems to be what they are asking for. Why does LVM really come into it at all?

That said - perhaps this will help you
