Solaris: Expanding / Extending a mount point / Slice

I'm new to UNIX, sort of inherited this job. I have an HP lefthand SAN, where I added 100GB to one of the volumes. As I understand I also have to expand the volume on the server (solaris 10 ) as well. So, how do I do that? The file system is called: sybdump. the mount point is /export/xxx/sybdump. I believe its a zfs, but not sure. Can someone please help?? Please use red crayon. Smilie

First check if you really have ZFS filesystem. Post output of:
mount | grep sybdump

# mount | grep sybdump
/export/sybase/compers on sybdump/compers read/write/setuid/devices/nonbmand/exec/xattr/atime/dev=4790002 on Fri Feb 17 04:35:43 2012
/export/sybase/dumps on sybdump read/write/setuid/devices/nonbmand/exec/xattr/atime/dev=4790003 on Fri Feb 17 04:35:43 2012

So you don't have sybdump filesystem, but ZFS pool. To check what is the structure of that pool run (and post output):
zpool status sybdump

Bartus11 -

Thanks for helping me out, I truly appreciate it!! How did you know it was a zfs pool? What was it in the output that gave you that indication? I want to learn !!

# zpool status sybdump
pool: sybdump
state: ONLINE
scrub: none requested

sybdump ONLINE 0 0 0
c5t113d0 ONLINE 0 0 0

errors: No known data errors

In case of UFS the "on XXX" part in mount output looks different (like on /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0, or on /dev/md/d0 in case of SVM). To extend this pool simply run:
zpool add sybdump new_LUN

The "new_LUN" name can be found by running format.

Thanks again!! when you say 'new_LUN', do you mean cxtxdxsx? Can I do this while its in production? Will it take anyone or anything offline?
