Hi,

You'll need to tell us a little more information;
  • Is the system using LVM
  • Is the disk local or SAN
  • What is the underlying FS type.

But assuming that you're not using something like Veritas (VxVM) and if you already have the space available then you would probably just have to use lvextend to extend a volume.

As to mounting a file system then it is just a case of using the mount command like;

Code:
mount -t jfs2 /dev/hdisk5 /mnt

You can find information by running the
Code:
man mount

command or the
Code:
man lvm

command.

Regards

You need to know which volume group you have with that disk space to spare ( remember to always keep some free in order to extend logical volumes in that volume group before having to add extra disk, as a newbie I will not give the commands but suggest you to use SMIT (GUI) or smitty ( terminal )
you need to know what type of file system you want, I suggest with that size JFS2 and decide of the mount point
Code:
smitty lvm
smitty jfs2
