    I wish it was as simple as that but when the server in question is a HP DL380 G5 with x amount of discs in a RAID 5 configuration, i dont think that can be done can it?

    GPartedit will be fine and work, I've done it on Sharepoint, SQL and Exchange boxes before (when badly setup by others!) and works no issues. As you say ensure you have backups / other ones to take over just in-case but you should be fine to adjust with it, it will disk check all drives on the next start up, find errors and reboot usually but with no ill effects after that I have had before.
