How about taking a backup of everything, possibly using a hard drive
cloning tool, then using the gparted live cd to resize the partitions? I
guess it's not without risk, but to be honest, it will probably work -  it
has never failed for me so far. It isn't my data though, so easy for me to
say! ;-) The live cd / usb image can be downloaded from here:

While we're on the subject, I've only ever used this mailing list to talk
about libvirt. What tool are you using to virtualise your existing physical
servers? It's an area I want to start looking into in the fairly near
future too.

Best regards,
