i have to increase the size of my ext3 partition (sdd1) mounted on NetApp LUN (disk sdd, no other partition is mounted here). I already resized the LUN and refreshed new size with iscsiadm. Empty space is already visible on the disk level (fdisk -l -> dev/sdd).
Now, while i am not using LVM, i'am forced to use either fdisk or parted to resize my partition and then use resize2fs to resize filesystem. Is it correct?
Now, the data on this partition is not critical, however i don't like to loss it. Which tool/method is then safer for resizing - with fdisk (recreating partition with new size at the same place), or with parted (resize command, seems to me easier). Resize2fs on my kernel would work even online, and i consider it pretty harmless.
