NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     xlvExtend - extend	an xlv volume

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/privbin/xlvExtend -d new partition -o objectName -M device
     file | -m mount dir

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -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

     -o	objectName
	  The name to give the new volume element that is created.

     -M	device file
	  If the logical volume	is not currently mounted, then this argument
	  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.
