Extending the Filesystem Online and Offline in HPUX

To extend the filesystem online in HPUX without unmounting the mounted filesystem, OnlineJFS software is required, if not offline filesystem extend is only possible.
Lets see both the ways.

Extending or Increasing the Filesystem Online using OnlineJFS:

1. Check for OnlineJFS depot:
# swlist -l product | grep -i vxfs
# swlist -l product | grep -i online

If you get the output for the above commands, then we can goahead for extending or increasing the filesystem online (onfly).

2. Calcluate the required size to be extend and check the free space available in the Volumegroup.
Lets say for example: 20GB to be extend from 30GB for the filesystem /oracle (/dev/vg00/lvol1). So we will have total size of Filesystem to be 50GB.

3. Extend the Filesystem as per the requirement.
#lvextend -L 50G /dev/vg00/lvol1
#fsadm -F vxfs -b 50G /oracle
Note: fsadm command execution not required if OnlineJFS software is not installed. Instead of fsadm, use extendfs command. Described how to use extendfs command below under Extending or increasing the filesystem Offline.

Thats it, we are done with extending the filesystem online in HPUX, verify using the bdf command.

Extending or Increasing the filesystem Offline:

1. Unmount the Filesystem:
#umount /oracle
2. Extend the Filesystem as per the requirement.
#lvextend -L 50G /dev/vg00/lvol1
#extendfs -F vxfs /dev/vg00/lvol1

3. Mount the Filesystem:
#mount /dev/vg00/lvol1 /oracle

Thats it, we are done with extending the filesystem offline in HPUX, verify using the bdf command.
