    Hi,

    I have made a OpenSUSE Xen HVM guest on a 2GB .IMG file.
    (My DOM0 is CentOS 5.5 x86_64)
    Now I use DD to copy it to a LVM (20Gb) and then boot it in XEN HVM to deply a Machine ASAP.
    How should I resize the partition ?
    I tried fdisk and it corrupts the MBR of the new LVM.

    Does openSUSE require special resizing methods.
    As soon as the new Partition table is written by fdisk and I try the resize2fs command it gives me a Super Block corrupt error.
    The booting of this new LVM also fail.

    If I dd the 512 bytes of the .IMG file back to the LVM it works again and boots but shows only 2 GB space.

    How should I solve this problem ?
    Resizing centOS, Fedora is easy and works simply well.

    Please help

    Hi,

    falko I am using LVMs and not images.
    After increasing the PARTITION size of the 1st partition usinf fdisk it corrupts the Super Block.
    Hence e2fsck fails, giving a super block error.
    This is in the case of openSuse LVM.
    CentOS LVM works and resizes without any errors.

    But you said you use an .IMG file for the guest. :confused:

    If you use LVM, then this guide might help you: http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_lvm
