I've been able to resize in EC2 using this build of appliance-tools, so I think it is resolved. Pierre can you comment on this?
Comment 8 Jay Greguske 2011-05-06 09:46:52 EDT
EC2 images these days are now partition images (#700594), so this bug is no longer relevant in EC2. And since we don't ship appliance-tools to customers, it's really just an internal issue now. The test I used to was to boot an image produced by appliance tools (such as one in a compose in /mnt/redhat/rel-eng/RHEL-6.1-RC-1.0/6.1/Appliance) with a larger volume than the partition table allocates for, and then repartition to take up the rest of the space via fdisk. After writing the partition table, reboot the VM. If it comes up without a problem, then I think the bug is fixed.
