Also every time you add & remove a disk for VVM view it reserves the device id which means additional problems. Actually my first live-and-learn experience with VVM was due to moving a disk back and forth between servers (fast, easy and dangerous way to move 4T of data); the id's got mixed, VVM reported "already initialized" for all new devices etc. so I experimentally mkfs'ed the real device instead of vx device. Result: Disaster in a file system that consisted of two concatenated disks. Deceivingly it worked fine for two weeks until vxconfigd restarted probably upon VEA installation. Thus, I'm looking for a way to resize a file system without too much hassle with temporary disks. -j- -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Darren Dunham Sent: jueves, 29 de marzo de 2007 17:37 To: Veritasemail@example.com Subject: Re: [Veritas-vx] resizing a device > With this scheme only the resizing is not yet solved.

I haven't used it much, but someone else has already commented that the dynamic resize requires additional disks in the disk group. (That's what the 'vxdisk resize' is.) Presumably you could temporarily add a disk (could be tiny) to the group, resize the storage LUN, then remove the temporary disk. It would just be acting as a holding place for the DG information while the LUN is resized. -- Darren Dunham [EMAIL PROTECTED] Senior Technical Consultant TAOS http://www.taos.com/ Got some Dr Pepper?
