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

    drdemonx Novice





      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?
