my question: I want to increase the "/dev/vx/dsk/datadg/p108" filesystem size to another 20GB(this is under veritas control).

Please help me to solve this issue.

# 2  

add the disks to your volume and then take vxresize or
vxassist to grow your volume. Previous read the VxVM
admin guide, you can loss data!

# 3  

This syntax usually works for me. Be EXTREMELY careful before applying ANY veritas commands.

You need to know if these file systems were encapsulated or not as well.

/etc/vx/bin/vxresize -bx -g <datagroup> <volname> +5g (adds 5 gig)

your disk group can be datadg and your volume name is different from your mount point name. Keep that in mind. Your volume name and mount point name are different in your case. Your volume would be p108.

As lowbyte said earlier, read the admin guide CAREFULLY.
