HP Raid Array - DL 120 G7-Added drive to Raid 5 array to create more space

Added extra drive to Raid5  array  to 5 drives on Smart Array 410 controller. Drive expanded to max size. Size before adding drive was 204GB now 273.34GB.  Then tried to extend- Logical Volume in LVM Manager in RHEL 5.8 and cannot see space. No extents available. Fdisk does not show any extra space to format a partition. What Step(s) did i miss here? Trying to add to /dev/ccis/c0d0p2 which is part of VolGroup01. Logical Vol 00 is the space I wanted to expand.  Thanks for any tips. I obviously am missing something here.
