xlvExtend - extend an xlv volume
/usr/sysadm/privbin/xlvExtend -d new partition -o objectName -M device
file | -m mount dir
xlvExtend adds another partition to a logical volume and then grows the
filesystem on it. The data already on the logical volume remains intact,
but any information previously on the partition that is being added will
be destroyed. This command calls xlv_make(1M) to make the new partition
into a volume, xlv_mgr(1M) to add the volume element to the logical
volume, and xfs_growfs(1M) to grow the filesystem onto the new volume.
This privcmd is not intended to be called from the command line.
xlv_make(1M) and xlv_mgr(1M)provide a more interactive interface for
managing xlv volumes.
-d new partition
The name of the partition to add. The "/dev/dsk/" part of the path
should be omitted. Any information on this partition will be
The name to give the new volume element that is created.

must be given. It is the full pathname to the logical volume.
-m mount dir
If the logical volume is currently mounted, then this argument must
be given. It is the directory where the logical volume is mounted.
