Thanks jlliagre

Can you please put some light as what you mean by

as long as the underlying partition can be grown
Does it mean that you got free cylinder, then that can be used withing root or any other slice ?

Thanks again

The free cylinders need to be contiguous to the end of the existing slice.

My best advice would be for you to use ZFS and forget about most if not all of these issues.

Thanks jlliagre!

Assume if my slice two is like

0 to 32456

and i have a slice 6 which is assign as 32000 to 32400, can i extend the size of this slice with the remaining cylinders( which is 56 in this example) without loosing the data??

Yes, assuming these 56 cylinders aren't already used by another slice.
