 NAME
      extendfs (hfs) - extend an HFS file system size

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/extendfs [-F hfs] [-q] [-v] [-s size] special

 DESCRIPTION
      If the original HFS file system image created on special does not make
      use of all of the available space, the extendfs command can be used to
      increase the capacity of an HFS file system by updating the file
      system structure to include the extra space.

      The command-line parameter special specifies the character device
      special file of either a logical volume or a disk partition.  The
      special must be unmounted before the extendfs command can be run (see
      mount(1M)).

    Options
      extendfs recognizes the following options:

	   -F hfs    Specify the HFS file system type.

	   -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 the number of blocks is not
		     specified, the maximum possible size is used.

 EXAMPLES
      To increase the capacity of a file system created on a logical volume,
      enter:

	   umount /dev/vg00/lvol1

	   lvextend -L larger_size /dev/vg00/lvol1

	   extendfs -F hfs /dev/vg00/rlvol1

	   mount /dev/vg00/lvol1 mount_directory

 WARNINGS
      The root file system cannot be extended using the extendfs command
      because the root file system is always mounted, and the extendfs
      command only works on unmounted file systems.

      extendfs will fail if used on a file system, on a logical volume,
      where the logical block size of the logical volume is greater than the
      file system's fragment size.  The logical block size, of a logical

      volume changes, when additional disks with larger sector size are
      added.

 RETURN VALUE
      extendfs returns the following values:

	    0	     No errors were detected and file system was
		     successfully extended.
	    1	     Command aborted.
