Resize logical volume - lvresize

I'm new to Linux and am tring to resize the logical volume where /var resides as I made it too small on the initial setup. I'm having troubles with the lvresize command.

When I enter: lvresize -r --size +200M /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol03
I get the following returned:

Rounding up size to full phyiscal extent 224.00MB
fsadm: execlp failed: No such file or directory
fsadm failed: 2

Please help. This isn't terribly urgent, but I'm trying very hard to learn Linux am feeling very stuck with this item.
Thanks!
