The question:
Has anyone of you been using ext2online to resize (large) ext3 filesystems?
I have to do it going from 500GB to 1TB on a productive system I was
wondering if you have some horror/success stories.
I'm using RHEL4/U4 (kernel 2.6.9) on this system.

That kernel seems to be a bit old. Better upgrade first.

You don't upgrade when using the stable releases... that's the whole idea, you don't have to worry about a new versions of anything, the bugs and security issues are backported, but the version stays the same. Highly desirable for "must work" systems, no so nice for doing cutting edge stuff using nice features you don't have. :-(
