This is more of an Ubuntu question but I'm hoping others will find it helpful. Our VM admins expanded the available disk, but restarting the system doesn't cause it to automatically use it. What do I need to do? Googling for it gave me too many answers. Gparted, parted, expand2fs, etc.
This seems to be related to the OS management, so maybe you could get some support from the VM manager or a Linux IT support in your team, in case you have doubts on the steps on how to add an additional device.
The issue you may be facing is that the new added unit in your case got a different label, and it is not called sdb. Make sure you are using the right label for your new added device.
You can list the existing units via the following command:
sudo fdisk -l
