Online Lun Resize

Hi all,
I have one LUN 200 gb.
I use this LUN for RAW access.
I can extend this LUN to 400 GB using EVA Cotnroler.
What will see kernel for new LUN.

Re: Online Lun Resize

Very likely, the system will not see the increased size, because, as far as I know, the EVA does not signal a size change to the host.

You don't say what operating system you are using, but the safest way would be to reboot the system during which it will make a new inquiry.

Then it depends on your software if and how you can make use of the increased size. Hopefuly, this will not make any existing data unavailable...

Re: Online Lun Resize

I am not aware of any documentation how to treat raw volumes (is this for databases?), but have you already tried an IOSCAN?

Re: Online Lun Resize

Hi,

You can use the Lun of 200 GB for raw access
You can not extend a LUN under HPUX.
Solution : create an extra LUN of 200 GB and add it to your volumegroup.

Lun's can be added online to hpux.
Use the follownig command's after the presentation of the LUN

ioscan -fnC disk
insf -e
ioscan -funC disk (to see the device file)
