Mirvutil and perm limit for user volume

What is the problem with my ALTERVOL command?
Where to get the latest manual that includes error 57?

Re: Mirvutil and perm limit for user volume

Hello Fred,

Is the disc member81 an 36GB disc? if so, it is a know problem that altervol fails on 36GB disc.

A workaround is to use volutil:newvol to alter the perm/tran value.

There is also a binary patch workaround also which is memory resident code, so this patch will not survive a re-boot, but it
is a quick and dirty way of doing the altervol using debug.

If you are interested to the binary patch workaround, please log a call to the HP Response Center.

The error "(volutil 57)" occurs because the total % (perm+tran) is not equal or exceeding 100%. This error occurs regardless of the disc size.

Re: Mirvutil and perm limit for user volume

Fred,

as far as I recall, the Error "invalid space limit was detected" results if you attempt to set a limit that conflicts with the present disk allocation.

For example, if the disk already has 10% permanent space in use, it rejects a 100% transient limit change. (even though transient space is not really meaningful for user volumes ;-)

I suspect that this also rejects the 0% limit, because the special value 0 did cause some issues in the past.

The error message "invalid permanent and transient space combination" is most likely because the sum of both should not be below 100%.

Lars.

Re: Mirvutil and perm limit for user volume

That's correct, MEMBER81 is a 36GB disk
