Hi:

There are indeed several ways, but perhaps the safest way is to take an Ignite 'make_tape_recovery' backup of vg00 and use it to re-Ignite (re-install) your operating system.

Choose the Advanced Installation mode and select the sizes for the filesystems you require.

Regards!

Hi,

Best option is create a ignite backup. Reboot from tape go to interactive mode and extend the file systems from there.
