I have a OES SP2 server with one partition on a SAN virtual disk. I used LVM
to configure this, since I wanted to be able to extend the partition like I
know it from Netware. Now the time has come, more space is needed. I resized
the virtual disk on the SAN, but the OES Server still reports the old size.
On Netware, there is the "scan for new devices" command, after which the
server knows the new size of a device. Is there something similar on Linux?

And can I just create a second partition on this device, add it to the LVM
volume and then extend the partition, I created on this volume without
umounting or rebooting?
