step 1
#vgdisplay -v vgname
look PE size (Mbytes) 4
Free PE 12800
then multiply 4 x 12800 = 52428800 bytes = 51200 mb. because lvextend uses mb
256000 your current lv + 51200 available = 307200MB
#lvextend -L 307200 /vgname/lvname
Make sure you online JFS installed on your HP-UX box.
#fsadm -F vxfs -b 307200M /mountpoint/that mapped to lvname
and it's done.
check your bdf //mountpoint/that mapped to lvname to see new incsreased size
