Re: Extending FS in rootvg

Sorry...
But i believe, You know the steps.. which you can do by obeserving the docs... but one thing I want to say.. Rootvg is not mirrored...this the center of attraction in your post.. A good Admin always..should do it.. And i believe you want to be.. anyways.. the above posts by my friends will help you.. please dont get confused in between PA-RISK and Itanium... the pocedure might be diifferent for mirroring but the extension of file systems are pretty similar... So it would be done with fsadm -F -b .. , its for vxfs... make sure if you are looking for large files then you have to add -o largefiles along with the command...but for hfs it is different.. so depending on each requirement you have to analysize.. hope this helps..thanks

Re: Extending FS in rootvg

do you have onlineJFS ??

check swlist -l product |grep -i online

if it is there , you can do it online otherwise need downtime as you need to unmount /home and /tmp for extending

Re: Extending FS in rootvg

Onlinejfs is not there.But I am very clear about extending normal VGs and FS.But here the case is rootvg and /opt,/tmp filesystems.And moreover its a RX series Server.Because of all these reasons,I am asking for the clarifications....

Re: Extending FS in rootvg

I think i am not clear yet.
I need the full output of commands
# vgdisplay -v vg00
# bdf
and the the new size of the file system.
Please be precise.
