Quartion is not clear,

Are you trying to increase the size of a LV or you are trying to mirror.

If you are trying to increse the size of a LV, then first check free PEs are available.

then excute the "lvexteand command"
example is as below:

Extend the logical volume that holds the filesystem.
#/sbin/lvextend -L 8590 /dev/vg00/lvol8

(NOTE: the -L option is the NEW size
The new size of /var will be 8590 MB)

Extend the file system.

#/sbin/extendfs -F vxfs /dev/vg00/rlvol8

If you are trying to mirror, then, example is below.
#lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol3 /dev/dsk/cxtxdx

If you are trying to reduce, then use
#lvreduce command.

Hi,
If you want to add 32MB to your current LV,
Then after -L option you have to add the the value,
current LV size in MB + 32

For example,
If your current LV size is 100MB and need to extend it to 132 MB,
Then,
#lvextend -L 132 /dev/vgXX/lvXX /dev/dsk/XX
Also incrase the FS using fsadm,
#fsadm -b
