I'm trying to restore a clonezilla image of a server that had a total disk size of 1TB, however the server I need to restore to only has 400GB of space available. I figured by reducing the mounted /var partition by 600GB I could easily fit it onto the new server.
So I restored the clonezilla image to a separate server, started up single user mode and resized the partition using resize2fs and lvreduce to get it to the right size. df shows that I've successfully reduced the partition while I'm in centOS (single user or regular).
Only problem? Gparted and clonezilla still see the partition as 860GB rather than the 250GB I reduced it to.
