extendfs issue

Hi!
I have an issue with extendfs. First i created a 2.0Tb volume and a vxfs filesystem on it and after some time i needed an additional space. I unmounted filesystem (i have no OnlineJFS license) and ran lvextend - everything was ok. But when i ran extendfs i got this error:
=====
# /usr/sbin/extendfs -F vxfs /dev/vg02/rlvol02_2
vxfs extendfs: V-3-20000: extendfs: You don't have a license to Extend a file-system to size > 2147483648 sectors (2048 GB)

=====
So, as i can see, hp-ux cannot extend filesystems to >2Tb without additional fee (greediness is not good, but... anyway). My question is: is there any workaround?

Re: extendfs issue

hi,

check this :

http://docs.hp.com/en/6054/LVM_Limits_White_Paper_V4.pdf

if you have a HP-UX version 11.11 / 11.23, this could be the reason.

Re: extendfs issue

What OS version? What version of VxFS? IIRC on 11.11 LVM would let you create LVs of >2TB, but you couldn't address anything beyond 2TB anyway... so even if you had OJFS if this is 11.11 it still might not work...

Create a seperate filesystem? Why do you need one filesystem of >2TB?

Re: extendfs issue

seems like there is no work around.

What os version are you on 11.23?

Hmmm.... I'm not sure about vxfs version, but SMH shows this:

======

Mount Directory /data3
Version 6
Current Mount Options nosuid,ioerror=mwdisable,delaylog,
nodatainlog,dev=80001002
Mount Options for /etc/fstab nosuid

Re: extendfs issue

version 6 is the layout of the FS, you could be using veritas4.1 or 5

Re: extendfs issue

Hi Philipp,

There is no workaround.

You could offcourse always open a call with HP and ask for an enhancement request to have the onlinejfs license not needed for extending a >2TB lun, on basis of .. I suppose you could find a reason. ;)
