Expand /var/log Using sk105065

I am building a Private Threat Cloud agent server using sk149692 on Vmware ESXi.  The agent server will run the Gaia 81.10 OS.  The SK says that the /var/log partition on the agent server should be 2TB in size and the team that supports vmware has a trivial stipulation that the primary partition be 100 GB in size.  So, I had them create a second partition that is 2 TB and I want to expand /dev/sdb into the /dev/mapper/vg_splat-lv_log filesystem.  Looking at sk105065, fdisk should show /dev/sdb as not having a valid partition.  When I display /dev/sdb, I see it as type "Linux LVM."

Disk /dev/sda: 107.4 GB, 107374182400 bytes, 209715200 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk label type: gpt
Disk identifier: 234C90E5-5BC4-4287-A326-C6C5C66AEF8D

# Start End Size Type Name
1 34 614433 300M EFI System
2 614434 209715166 99.7G Linux LVM


I think I should delete the partition then follow SK105065, but I want to make sure I don't screw up LVM.
