Resize partitions on Centos 7.1 physical server


I have a hosted physical server running centos 7.1.

It was installed with several partitions.

The root partition has 0 bytes free space left

The /home partition is empty and has [url removed, login to view] free space.

The configuration of the disk / partitions is as follows:

[root@CentOS-71 home]# df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sda3 1008G 1008G 0 100% /

devtmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /dev

tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /dev/shm

tmpfs 16G [url removed, login to view] 14G 11% /run

tmpfs 16G 0 16G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup

/dev/sda2 488M 385M 78M 84% /boot

/dev/sda4 [url removed, login to view] 68M [url removed, login to view] 1% /home

tmpfs [url removed, login to view] 0 [url removed, login to view] 0% /run/user/0

[root@CentOS-71 home]# parted /dev/sda

My hosting allows only limited KVM sessions, that needs to be scheduled in advance.

I need someone with the right knowledge, to remote control my, pc, then connect to the KVM of the physical server, remove the /home partition, and extent the root partition without damaging the data of any of the other partitions.

This should be easy project, that will take very short period of time to complete.

Budget is low, so please bid accordingly.
