Move partition to new disk

Hi,

The disks of my servers are getting full and I need to move the /export/home partition on to a new set of disks. I already have 2 mirrored disks and have added 2 more and mirrored them after creating the filesystem on them.

Do I just need to edit the /etc/vfstab and point the /export/home to use the newly created mirror or are there some other steps that I have to do as well.
OS is Solaris 10.

Thanks in advance,
Br,
RTE

Hi,

did you use ZFS? Then add the new disks to the pool.
If not, copy all files and directorys from the old export/home
to the new one, unmount the old and mount the new one.
make it persistent, you must change /etc/vfstab.
