You seem to want to extend /pdscustom… There are chances you may not that easily because too full : In order to be able to extend JFS need space to reorganize itself… if too full it can fail… I never wait for an JSF to be at 99%…
to extend you use fsadm command but Im in my bed with my laptop and no doc nearby…
The way I do it would be to unfragment/reorg the FS before then use fsadm
It can be done via SAM
My concern is the number of disks in vg01, since you have not given a full layout of the VG, we have not information of how the VG is organized and so we can't be more precise with the options/arguments to use for we know nothing more ( volume belongs to a PVG? is it striped? etc…)

Looks like in your VG01 group there is free PE to allocate (5630 free PE)

So you might want to do :
Code:
lvdisplay /dev/vg01/pdscustom

# please note the Allocated PE value.
Code:
lvextend -l (old Allocated PE + added PE from volume group VG01 [total number of PE])  /dev/vg01/pdscustom

Since your volume group PE size is 16 MB you will need to calculate the total number of kbytes to extend like (PE SIZE - in your case 16 MB x Total number of LE for the specifed lvol x 1024)

Finally extend the filesystem
Code:
fsadm -F vxfs -b  (PE SIZE - in your case 16 MB x Total number of LE for the specifed lvol x 1024) /pdscustom

Be sure the have at least some space on /pdscustom or extending will fail (but will not cause any damage to your data).
