Disk Resize (+) over GUI, wrong qemu-img info

Good Day together,

i successfully resized the disk of a vm on my proxmox node from 100GB to 500GB with the Web-GUI in the Hardware-Tab. I already edited the partition table on the unix guest and everything works fine. When i look into the config of the VM in the Web-GUI and in the vz/images/[vmID]\[vmID.config], it says 500GB.

BUT when i exec the command qemu-img info on the shell, it tells me that the virtual size is 100GB.

So, the VM config is updated but the img not.

What can i do in this case?
Okay, i just saw that there was an old disk (disk1) and the current disk is disk2. disk2 is fine! My mistake.

Could you please close this topic? Thank you!!!
