How to add more space in Centos running in vmware workstation

Guys,

I have just added additional 30GB for our centos vm,  teh disk has been expanded in vmware workstation, but I'm struggle on how to  expand current disk in centos with additional drive space.

What I would like to have is to expand /dev/mapper/vg_SAO_TR-lv_root to another 30GB which the size was added by me in vm level.


[root@localhost ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 53.7 GB, 53687091200 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 6527 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000b460d

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          64      512000   83  Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2              64        2611    20458496   8e  Linux LVM

Disk /dev/mapper/vg_SAO_TR-lv_root: 18.9 GB, 18865979392 bytes

Disk /dev/mapper/vg_SAO_TR-lv_swap: 2080 MB, 2080374784 bytes

install system-config-lvm to not seek commands

upi need to echo 1 to rescan item in disk and it will be resized, then you need to add LVM type DOS partition, then you can extend LVM to that physical volume and d inflight resize of centos filesystem
