Resizing a SUSE Linux Disk when running on VMWare

Obviously i wont go into the Vmware bit as that’s straight forward –

So connect to the server then do the following :


echo 1 > /sys/block/sdX/device/rescan (replace the sdX with sda if thats your disk)

You can check this has worked running

fdisk -l

Then this is where i cheat a bit as i like the GUI

Open yast

then open Partitioner

Then goto your drive and click resize.

click next/finish

I had to reboot the server to see the change.
