 extendfs(1M)                                                   extendfs(1M)

 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,

           umount /dev/vg00/lvol1

           lvextend -L larger_size /dev/vg00/lvol1

           extendfs -F hfs /dev/vg00/rlvol1

           mount /dev/vg00/lvol1 mount_directory
