How to extend a Solaris 11 Partition?

Disk is currently 16GB, need to extend to 40GB, it's a Virtual Machine hosted under vSphere 5.0. (/dev/dsk/c4t0d0p1)

Please note I've tried the usual partition tools, and they do not recognise the partition.

e.g. Parted Magic, GParted Live CDROM, Acronis etc

I've also tried writing out the partiton table with

fdisk -W table.tmp but it seems not to work correctly in this version of Solaris 11. (not 10!).
