Need utility to partition server 2003 VMs

I have some older 2003 servers running under VMware which are running out of drive space.  I've added additional space in VMware but now need a way to increase the size of the disks.  I'm looking for either some kind of partitioning software that can do it or perhaps another way with VMware that would allow me to increase the size of the local drives.

To extend the Virtual disk in VMware, follow below link

Once you have extended the Virtual Disks in VMware, you will have to extend the partitions in Guest OS.

If its a Data partition, you can use Diskpart --> Extend command

If its a System(OS) partition, then you can extend the partition using Diskpart after booting from a bootable disk or use Partition-Magic tool
