Reducing the size of a file system will fail if there are file system resources currently in use within the sectors to be removed from the file system. In this case, a reorganization may help free those busy resources and allow a subsequent reduction in the size of the file system.

Incredible,

I decreased the u009 fs with the below command


Code:
root@wa1us105 [/]# /usr/lib/vxvm/bin/vxresize -F vxfs -g wa1us105dg u009 -60g -b
VxVM vxassist ERROR V-5-1-325 dm:-b: No disks match specification
VxVM vxresize ERROR V-5-1-4703 Problem running vxassist command for volume u009, in diskgroup wa1us105dg

as per df -k the fs got reduced. but vxassist is not showing the free space in dg..


Code:
root@wa1us105 [/]# vxassist -g wa1us105dg maxsize layout=concat
Maximum volume size: 999424 (488Mb)

Its a production server..needs to be resolved..

did you run vxdiskconfig and vxdctl enable?
which version of veritas you running and on which release of Solaris?

its vxvm 5.0 implemented on sol 9

I tried both...

but...


Code:
root@wa1us105 [/]# vxassist -g wa1us105dg maxgrow u008
Volume u008 can be extended by 999424 to: 573521920 (280040Mb)

Use vxassist to increase to volume
use fasdm to increase filesystem (mount point)
