# /usr/sbin/fsck -F vxfs -o full,nolog -y /dev/vgx1/lvolx

file system is larger than device

vxfs fsck: cannot initialize aggregate

file system check failure, aborting ...

Hi Akif,

Same question... What upgradation?? Upgradation is normally done with vgversion... What exactly did you upgrade with vgmodify??

Re: FS is larger than device(fsck needs checking)

Hello,

A statment mistake "upgradation", But "vgmodify" purpose is to modify vg only to extend vg's to accommodate more space.

After increased vg size via vgmodify and lv's respectively increased , Everything goes fine untill reboot.

After reboot the system throws above errors.and i tried with fsck multiple options -y etc.
