What I've created is a RAID 5 Array on the SAN (3x73GB) drives. No problems there. On that Array I've created a volume group of the entire allocated space (approx 135GB). Within this volume group I've created 3 logical volumes of 45GB a piece (formated ext3).
All this works fine. Now I've added another disk into the array and have grown the array.
Initially the partition /dev/sdc1 was created with fdisk (sorry :( parted is fairly new to me).
Upon finishing the rebuild of the array I rebooted the system (couldn't find another good way to get it to re-read the new sizing) and parted see's the new array at it's proper size (approximately 200GB).
Now I'm trying to grow the existing partition:
