You're trying to resize your existing 2.25TB partition into
a smaller, 3.0GB one.  Adding three more zeros should help:

  resize 1 0 3000000

Also, you might want to try a newer version of parted.

I am interested to see if you have success resizing the ext2 partition
of such a size.  I was debugging a resizing issue about 2weeks ago.
