    Hi all,
    I feel kinda stupid here, but I am having trouble growing an Ubuntu 16.04 partition running on VMware.
    1. I grew the virtual disk with VMware (was:200GB, now 250GB)
    2. I extended the Extended partition (/dev/sda2) to fill the disk (now 250GB)
    3. I ran: lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/mapper/my--webserver--vg-root (got a little, but only about 4MB)
    4. I ran: resize2fs /dev/mapper/cloud001--webserver--vg-root (got a little, but only about 4MB)
    5. Still have not used the 50GB I added. What am I missing?
    What I can't seem to get through my head is extending /dev/sda5 inside the extended partition -THX in ADV!
