    Help! Resized virt partitions and they won't boot.

      Hello,

       

       

      I have two partitions both are the same - clones of each other - both running Centos4x

       

       

      My ESX version is 2.5.4

       

       

       

      I went through the process to expand their partitions using the following command:

       

       

        vmkfstools -X 15g /vmfs/vmhba0:0:0:6/New server.vmdk

       

       

      (they used to be 10gb in size).

       

       

      Now when I power on the servers in Virtual Center I get an error:

       

       

      "A general system error occured: operation failed to change the VM to the expected power state"

       

       

      What do I need to do to get them to boot?

       

       

      Thanks!

       

       

       

       

      Mike
