Not sure what you are tring to do

would you like to chenage the size of a filesystem ?
chfs -a size=+1 /mountpoint

Would you like to change the size of vg
You can just add a biger disk to the vg
Break the mirror
resize the disk re-attach
remirror
break mirror on small disk
change the size reattach the disk
remirror
Note ! If you use SVC you can Just expand the disk and then just do
chvg -g vgname


tools
bootinfo -s hdiskxx
lsvg |lsvg -il
lsvg |lsvg -ip
