Modifying filesystem block size.

I am having a vxfs filesystem , which is having a block size of 8192 bytes.. But i found lot of disk space is being wasted , so i wanted to modify to 1024 bytes .. can we modify this block size online using fsadm or by any means ?

Shalom,

Back up the data.

newfs -o

If it can be done with fsadm that document will tell you how.
