bdf gives the wrong size of /var

Hello
By doing a lvextend -L /dev/vg00/lvol8
I increased /var to 7GB. But when I do a bdf I am still shown only 6GB in size. I went into sam to verify the size and sam does report correctly the size of /var (7GB). Why doesn't the bdf command??? I am running a rx2620 with HPUX 11.23

You extended the LV, but you did not increase the file system.

If you have online JFS enabled you can do:

fsadm -b 7000m /var

Actually yes, I did do that but I keep getting this: fsadm: You don't have a license to run this program

Hi Ross:

> fsadm: You don't have a license to run this program

Then you may not have licensed Online JFS (or you did many years ago and you are running a release whereon a license bug caused an early expiration.

Meanwhie, you can unmount the file system and extendfs it with below syntax.

# extendfs -F vxfs /dev/vg00/lvol8

Now mount the file system and check with bdf. It should give 7Gb.

Dave,
That did it. I don't get it... we buy everything with OnLineJFS. I do not know how this fell through the cracks. Thank you to everyone
