 extendfs_vxfs(1M)					   extendfs_vxfs(1M)




 NAME
      extendfs (vxfs) - extend a VxFS file system size

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

 DESCRIPTION
      If the VxFS file system image created on special does not use all of
      the available space, extendfs increases the capacity of a VxFS file
      system by updating the file system structure to include the extra
      space.

      special specifies the device special file of either a logical volume
      or a disk partition.  If special refers to a mounted file system, you
      must unmount special before running extendfs (see mount(1M)).

    Options
      extendfs recognizes the following options:

	   -F vxfs   Specify the VxFS file system type.

	   -q	     Query special to determine the size.  The file system
		     is not extended.

	   -v	     Specify verbose mode, which displays the resulting size
		     of file system along with fsck output of the newly
		     sized file system.	 Without -v there is no output.

	   -s size   Specify the number of DEV_BSIZE blocks to add to the
		     file system.  If size is omitted, the maximum possible
		     size is used.

 EXAMPLES
      This example shows how 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 vxfs /dev/vg00/rlvol1

	   mount /dev/vg00/lvol1 mount_directory
