Yes, you'll need to resize the partition, first.  The only way I've come
up with to do this is to use fdisk to delete the partition and then
recreate it at the exact same start location with the expanded end
location (I always make sure I have backups of the contents before I do
this - still makes me nervous even though I've done it a few dozen
times).  Save the new layout, then use pvresize to make LVM see the
expanded size.

I just added some space to my iscsi storage and I am trying to get my LV
to use it.  I was wondering if anyone had some advice on how to expand
that partition.  I thought maybe pvresize would do it but it looks like
I need to resize the partition first then run pvresize?
