NAME [Toc] [Back]
extendfs - extend a file system size (generic)
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
/usr/sbin/extendfs [-F FStype] [-q] [-v] [-s size] special
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
If the original file system image created on special does not make use
of all of the available space, extendfs can be used to increase the
capacity of a file system by updating the file system structure to
include the extra space.
The command-line parameter special specifies the device special file
of either a logical volume or a disk partition. The special must be
un-mounted before extendfs can be run (see mount(1M)).
Options [Toc] [Back]
extendfs recognizes the following options:
-F FStype Specify the file system type on which to operate (see
fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)). If this option is not
included on the command line, then the file system type
is determined from the file /etc/default/fs.
-q Query the size of special. No file system extension
will be done.
-v Verbose flag.
-s size Specifies the number of DEV_BSIZE blocks to be added to
the file system. If size is not specified, the
maximum possible size is used.
EXAMPLES [Toc] [Back]
To increase the capacity of a file system created on a logical volume,
lvextend -L larger_size /dev/vg00/lvol1
extendfs -F hfs /dev/vg00/rlvol1
mount /dev/vg00/lvol1 mount_directory
