Resize R80 partition

I am trying to resize one of my paritions because it keeps complaining that /opt is low on space.

I followed the instructions in the link below:

https://www.51sec.org/2014/08/resize-checkpoint-firewalls-diskpartition-space-gaia-and-splat-platfor... 

Step 4 worked - lvresize -L 11G vg_splat/lv_current

But step 5 gives me the following error:

[Expert@r80_mgr:0]# resize2fs /dev/vg_splat-lv_current
resize2fs 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
open: No such file or directory while opening /dev/vg_splat-lv_current

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tired both and had no luck. Ended up building a new R80.20 Manager with a bigger HD. The good thing is I learned how easy it is to backup and restore a Checkpoint Manager. Worked without issue.

Thanks for all the suggestions/help

Check out the following sk131332 How to resize XFS partitions in R80.20 

"R80.20 has moved from the ext3 file system to the XFS file system for its lv_log and lv_current partitions. Resize2fs does not work on XFS. As a result, you will not be able to add disk space as per sk114115"

Both these SK's seem to be restricted to CP employee's; can these be made public?

Is there a problem with getting to that SK article? I keep getting the error 

Error encountered processing a template.

 

I'd really like to read the document as I have a partition I'd like to resize but I don't want to mess it up.

It still not working for me, I can't see any reason why this should not be visible, can CP please explain why this is not accessible?

because this commande       resize2fs /dev/vg_splat-lv_current       is not correct

the correct command is        resize2fs /dev/vg_splat/lv_current

you can use xfs_growfs /dev/vg_splat/lv_current instead of resize2fs /dev/vg_splat/lv_current after R80.3 later
