Dynamic Disk Volume Expansion?

» close window

The Question is:

How can I resize disk volume size without loosing data on it ? We have an EVA
 storage, and when I change it's size "on-the-fly", I'd like to see that on
 system (after INITIALIZE show device /size ... show it is bigger) without
 loosing data on the disk.

The Answer is :

  To enable Dynamic Volume Expansion (DVE) on an existing disk volume
  (available on V7.3-2 and later), dismount the volume and remount it
  privately.  Issue the DCL command SET VOLUME/LIMIT.  Dismount and
  then remount the volume appropriately; remount the volume for your
  normal operations.   When more storage is required, you can now
  issue the DCL command SET VOLUME/SIZE to resize the volume.
