Extending /stand

What is the best procedure for extending /stand on a HPUX IA64 11/23 v2 server?

Looking for options..

Re: Extending /stand

Hi Chris:

You could use DRD or Ignite. In the later case, make a recovery tape and resinstall, chosing the Advanced Installtion mode wherein you can set your filesystem sizes.

The DRD option is described here:

Create a make_tape_recovery tape or make_net_recovery image.

Reinstall the system from the image. During the install you can specify new sizes for any VG00 LV's you need to resize.

Re: Extending /stand


You can find lot of threats here related to same topic. First, why do you want to extend /stand filesystem. It is a static filesystem and will not grow normally. Cleanup with deleting unwanted files.

If you still want to extend, then ignite backup and restore is the recommanded way.

Re: Extending /stand

needed to load some patches and /stand was out of space to accomodate. I did clean up of system.prev (moved) and make it thru, but may experience problems in the future. This is an older box where file sizes weren't that large on vg00.

Re: Extending /stand

If MirrorUX is installed, check my answer in this thread: or

If you don't have MirrorUX, create an Ignite backup and resize while restoring.

My 2 cents,
