I know it's late but i think it could be useful for other peoples where comes around this Thread. I found a solution for XenServer 8.2 ( With LVM and ext3 ( Thin Provision ) )


echo 1 > /sys/block/sdx/devices/rescan <-Start Rescan on physical Volume

pvresize /dev/sda <-extend physical volume after rescan

pvdisplay <-check if physical volume now have the new size 

lvdisplay <- Note Logical Volume Group Name 

lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/XSlocalEXT….. <- Extend Logical Volume 


lvdisplay <- Recheck if Logical Volume ist proper extended

resize2fs /dev/XSlocalEXT….. <- Extend the Overlayed Filesystem zu max usable space



In Xenserver now click on Rescan and check if additional Space ist available
