Default Xenserver and storage

I've just increased the storage of one of my running VM's from 8GB to 40GB

To do this I needed to shutdown the running VM, and increase the size of the disk (with XenCenter)

After restarting the VM again the disk size is still 8GB *, but when I look at the disk properties with XenCenter for that VM I do see the 40GB.

*
PHP Code:
df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail 
Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1            7.5G  3.4G  3.8G  48% /
tmpfs                 1.5G     0  1.5G   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                   10M  496K  9.6M   5
% /dev
tmpfs                 1.5G     0  1.5G   0
% /dev/shm 
Anyone here who might know what's going on here, and how to fix this?

Thank you.

Increasing storage on a virtual machine is a multi-tier process.

1. Increase the size of the virtual harddisk
2. Increase the size of the partition
3. increase the size of the filesystem

you did 1, but I think you still need to do 2 and 3 on the virtual system. Depending on weather you use LVS or normal partitions etc.
