Hi,

If you're over 11i (11i v2 with the PHCO_35524 patch), you could resize disk online with vgmodify. Please check this:

Volume group "/dev/rdisk/disk11" does not exist in the "/etc/lvmtab" file.
Volume group "/dev/rdisk/disk11" does not exist in the "/etc/lvmtab_p" file.

Cross check and verify the disk ( DSF) existance.

&

Check for max PE per PV with vgdisplay command, this may give better idea

Re: unable to extend vg as well as pe

hi seeni,

No way to extend the pe_size, even in vgmodify.

Please check the max_pe in the VG has been set and try for possibility to change the same using vgmodify.

Refer the docs provided by Jose.
