Re: lvreduce


Adding to P... the L.V is the "container" of the filesystem and if the container doesn't contain the whole filesystem in the course of event that caused you to reduce it, it leads to loss of data. The document you have read is probably for online JFS which is shipped with some environments. However without online JFS....

tar -c /exampleitrc
umount /exampeitrc
newfs -F vxfs -s {size in blocks} /dev/vg01/rexampleitrc
tar -x /exampleitrc
bdf /exampleitrc.
