Hi,

Can somebody give me some advice on how to resize my root file system on a Debian Squeeze 64bit VM running on XCP?

I have found quite a few guides and I have a problem every time I use the resize2fs command. The disk become unusable.
I have copied the disk and attached it to another VM to test the procedure away from my live VM but everytime I use the resize2fs the disk is corrupted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Lee

    Sorry I didn't get to this earlier. For others with this problem, maybe this page will help:

    Lee, could you give us a quick write-up of what you did so that others can learn from your experience?

    Thanks!
