Attach Extra space to Xen VM


i'm running a Xen virtual machine in my Debian box. No problem in that.

Now i want to increase the size of the Virtual machine. I use the following procedure,but it doesn't work out. pl help me out.


1) create a logical volume.(lvcreate)
2)make into a filesystem.(mkfs)
3)mount the LV filesystem in mother machine (mount /dev/XenvloG/VM_SVN /xen)
4)Implement the xm block-attach(xm block-attach 3 phy:/xen /dev/xvda2 w)

Now when i get into the domU and give ls -l /dev/xvda2. it shows "No such files or directory".

Thanks in advance.
