resize filesystems

Dear All

We have HP9000 rp7400 Server running with hp-ux 11i.

Our Disk storage has two volume groups and are allocated as follows:

1. /#vgdisplay -v
--- Volume groups ---
VG Name /dev/vg00
VG Write Access read/write
VG Status available
Max LV 255
Cur LV 9
Open LV 9
Max PV 16
Cur PV 2
Act PV 2
Max PE per PV 4350
PE Size (Mbytes) 4
Total PE 8680
Alloc PE 6422
Free PE 2258
Total PVG 0
Total Spare PVs 0
Total Spare PVs in use 0

2. VG Name /dev/vgvedas
VG Write Access read/write
VG Status available, exclusive
Max LV 255
Cur LV 14
Open LV 14
Max PV 16
Cur PV 7
Act PV 7
Max PE per PV 17492
PE Size (Mbytes) 4
Total PE 122423
Alloc PE 121856
Free PE 567
Total PVG 0
Total Spare PVs 0
Total Spare PVs in use 0

As you can see /dev/vgvedas has only 2GB free space.

Is it possible to resize filesystems of /dev/vgvedas with free PE of /dev/vg00 ?

Thanks in advance.

No, and it may well be you dont have 2GB free but only 1 (vg00 mirrored disks?...)

Your only alternative apart from adding some disks in vgvedas and would be as a temporary solution: move data out by creating in vg00 lets say a lvol10 of 800 MB mounted on /tempo (if vg00 were mirrored you could create a 700 mb lv unig one disk and extend of the same using the other giving you 1.4GB but at your own risc (unmirrored))
and either copy a subdir that holds in and doesnt grow etc.., remove the subdir and link :ln -s /tempo subdir
