As long as you have free space on your PV ( run command: pvs to see how much free space you got) you can do the following:
lvextend -L+200G /dev/mapper/vg_server-lv_root
resize2fs /dev/mapper/vg_server-lv_root

First you must boot via other OS like live OS or rescue.
Use program like parted/gparted and resize your root partition.:)
With LVE (Logical Volume Management), which it appears the original poster is using, you do not need to actually resize the partition. Resizing the partition will cause data loss. Instead, with LVE, add space to the logical volume. The ability to resize logical volumes without repartitioning and reformatting is a key feature of LVE.

Never make any changes to your partitions or logical volumes without first making full backups of all of your data and testing those backups to make sure they are good.
