How to extend a fileset within a datadomain

I have a server running Tru64 V5.1B and one of the fileset's has used up all the free space left.

Please see the attached output of "df -k"

As you can see the /tph file system (fileset) has no free disk space i.e. 0% capacity and has fully used up 2048K i.e. 2Mb of diskspace.

As you can see the tph fileset is within
data_domain4.

How can I use the "chfsets" command to increase the space by 500MB i.e from 2048 to 502Mb without any loss of data.

Thank you

Looks like you havea a fileset quota set on fileset tph. You can verify this with "showfsets data_domain tph". Check the two lines that look something like this:

Files : 2189, SLim= 0, HLim= 0
Blocks (512) : 267668, SLim= 0, HLim= 0

If you have non-zero numbers for SLim or HLim, those are soft and hard quotas for number of files and total blocks used. You'll probably find one or both limits at 2048 in the Blocks line. To raise this to 502 MB, use the following command:

# chfsets -b 502000 data_domain4 tph

That will change the hard limit. If you want to specify a soft limit, use -B.

Martin is spot on. You have quotas set. Just check out why the values are set so low, may be there was some reasoning.

Hello Martin/Venkatesh,

With your help I was able to change the hard limit and soft limit accordingly as follows:-

I first checked the space with showfsets

# showfsets -k data_domain tph

First changed hardlimit to 1000Mb using:-
# chfsets -b 1024000 data_domain4 tph

Then changed softlimit to 500Mb using
# chfsets -B 512000 data_domain4 tph

Then checked with showfsets command to see the increase of space.

Thank you again.
