Hello there,
I extended my vdisk with +1GB which worked fine.

dmesg saw the capacity change on the guest.

Using this guide:
https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Resize_disks

I then ran parted and hit print but it didn't prompt the option to fix the disk because of more space being available.

vgdisplay also says there's no more free space after doing a pvresize on /dev/sda3..

I want to add a new logical volume with 1GB size but I can't get it done as it seems I'm missing something.

How to I get this done?

Summary:
I extended the vdisk successfully
dmesg printed there's a capacity change.
How do I extend my volume group to add a new logical volume with lvcreate?

Thanks!

maybe this works:
Code:
man pvresize
