Hi,

I would like to increase that my disk size. I can do it this work from Hardware-->Hard disk--->Resize
But Does not appear to be active on the operating system. I restarted the server, but it did not improve.

How can I see this on the server when I make a change to the hardware?
Do you need to restart the server in such cases?

Thanks

After you increased the size in the proxmox GUI you have to increase the available space in the guest OS as well.
You can use this guide: http://www.jaredlog.com/?p=1133 (although the first part is for vmware but the steps on the guest OS remain the same).
The only thing that might not apply to you is the "resize2fs"-step. If your filesystem is xfs for example you would need to use "xfs_growfs
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00" (or whatever your volume label is).
Hope this helps.
