how to change "VG Max Size"

I want to extend a VG (LVM 2.2) but i get the following error:

 

Error: The volume group exceeds the configured size.

 

How can i increase the VG Paramater "VG Max Size"? 

 

Thanks

Re: how to change "VG Max Size"

Could we see the "vgdisplay -v" output?

Usually the other values (max PV, number of extends) set the limit.

 

 

All details in

 

"HP -UX S y stem Administr ator's Guide: L ogical
V olume Management
HP-UX 1 1i V ersion 3"

 

Guide.


Hope this helps!
