Re: Enlarging a File system

If you have advfs utilities license (lmf list) you can use the addvol command.

If you have tru64 5.1B, and your domain uses only one partition, you can also expand the underlying disk if your storage subsystem allows it and use the following commands:
umount /mount_point
disklabel -rw dsk
mount /mount_point
mount -u -o extend /mount_point

Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: Enlarging a File system

The problem is that the addvol is like the vgextend command, you don't add space, you add a partition to an existing domain, for example.

So, you have to add a new disk or partition and add the partition to the domain using the addvol command.
