I have a XenServer installation. One of the VM's is running CentOS 5.4.

The VM has been extended in XenCenter from 12 to 16GB via the Storage tab whilst the VM was shutdown. I rebooted the VM but the virtual drive hasn't extended.

Do I need to do something to extend the drive?

The drive I want to extend is: /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00

Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
