Firstly, if at all possible, you're better off doing it with disks
unmounted, booting from a gparted live CD.  

Secondly, if that's not practical, that message is common when using, say
fdisk. Sometimes, running partprobe afterwards will reflect the new
partition scheme, other times, you may just have to reboot.
