is there a way to resize a lvm partition after processing dd command?

/dev/vg0/disk1 is 1G /dev/vg0/disk2 is 5G

after a dd partition, the size of /dev/vg0/disk2 become 1G.

dd if=/dev/vg0/disk1 of=/dev/vg0/disk2 bs=1M 

The issue here is that the logical volume partition size is reduced to the partition witch is backed up.

The 1G size on /dev/vg0/disk2 is not the size of the vg, but the partion, i mind it is not a lvm problem. Like you said you have to resize the partition.

If you are in linux you can install the ufstools and try growfs.ufs.
