Re: Space under rootdg

Hi Mutum,

You can not move disk space from your rootdg to an other diskgroup/volumegroup without moving a complete disk.

Buy a new disk(s) and add it to the proddata diskgroup.

Re: Space under rootdg

ahh!! Could you give a bit more info. shared VA7100? What kind of software are you using to manage the VA7100? Are you using switches? lun masking or zoning? Did you present your new luns to the WWN's of your server?
