Increase disk size of guest domain

Host System: SPARC S7-2 Server; 2x8-core CPUs; 128Gb RAM; 2x600Gb HDD. running Solaris 11.3.

Code:

$ uname -a
SunOS sog01 5.11 11.3 sun4v sparc sun4v
$

Original physical systems: Sun Blade 100s running Solaris 10

$

I have managed to use the ldmp2v(1M) utility to turn one of these systems into a client LDOM of the host system (using the downloaded ISO file sol-10-u11-ga-sparc-dvd.iso):
Code:

You have new mail.
$ uname -a
SunOS zzzz 5.10 Generic_147147-26 sun4v sparc sun4v
$

Unfortunately I have just noticed that the root file system of this LDOM is now full:
Code:
$ df -h /
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/dsk/c0d0s0         15G    15G     0K   100%    /

Contents of /etc/vfstab:
Code:
/dev/dsk/c0d0s1 -       -       swap    -       no      -
/dev/dsk/c0d0s0 /dev/rdsk/c0d0s0        /       ufs     1       no      -
/dev/dsk/c0d0s7 /dev/rdsk/c0d0s7        /export/home    ufs     2       yes     -

/dev/dsk/c0d0 is a ZFS volume on the host system, and the client file systems are, as you can see, UFS.

So the question is: Can I increase the size of the LDOM root partition easily, and if so, how? The alternative is to destroy this LDOM and recreate it using the -m option to ldmp2v to increase the size of the root partition. Not a problem, but not something I want to keep doing every time I get something wrong.
