Extend Filesystem under VxVM

We have already discussed extending a filesystem in AIX under JFS as well as the basic of softpartion where we could also extend its filesystem size. This time we have a task which is under Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM). We need to extend a partition that is being managed by VxVM.

To check if there is available space

[email protected]# vxassist -g ora_dg maxgrow fs_oracle
[email protected]# vxassist -g ora_dg maxsize layout=concat

To increase size

[email protected]# /etc/vx/bin/vxresize -g ora_dg fs_oracle +10g

There you have it folks! Very simple indeed.
