I've got a partition on a guest fedora system running in xenserver. Originally the size of the partition was 400GB. I recently extended the size to 600GB. It now shows in the xenserver console as being 600GB, however, when I get the disk size from the vm it is still reporting the old size.

/dev/xvdc1      394G  314G   61G  84%

I tired to resize the partition so that it would recognize the new size..

[root@fedora ~]# resize2fs /dev/xvdc1
resize2fs 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
The filesystem is already 104857344 blocks long.  Nothing to do!

Not really sure how to progress here, any help would be most appreciated.

I found a solution, which basically involved using gparted to resize the disk
