Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Extending /tmp help

HP-UX 11.31 Integrity (Itanium)


In SAM I was able to extend the logicol volume size from 1GB to 4 GB

SMH->Disks and File Systems->Logical Volumes->Details

LV Size (Mbytes)            4096


However, under SMH->Disks and File Systems->File Systems

/tmp is still showing 1 gb


Im missing a step I think to increase the file system. But not sure how.

Also, umount /tmp is not working. Device is busy. Tried rebooting, same thing.

Re: Extending /tmp help

Do you have Online JFS?  If so, try:


# fsadm -b 4096m /tmp


If not, then you will have to reboot the server and come up in single user mode, then use 'extendfs' to increase the file system size for /tmp.
