Resizing a disk once the volume has grown on host in a VM (Ubuntu)

The disk will not automatically resize on many platforms once more disk space was made available.

Particularly in Ubuntu 16.04

Rescanning the device for size maps :

echo 1 > /sys/class/scsi_device/2\:0\:0\:0/device/rescan

Then standard procedures to grow the fs apply.
