Dialog Box Information Messages

DiskSuite displays the following messages in information dialog boxes. These messages tell you a common mistake has been made or provide a helpful message. These dialog boxes appear with a large "i" on the left side of the message. There is only one button on the bottom of this dialog: OK.

You added additional capacity to the metadevice metadevice_type on
which file system file_system is mounted. You have the
option of growing this file system to take advantage of
this additional space either now or later (by hand).
If you choose to grow it now, the application will be
disabled until the growth process completes.

The command that will be run is:

    "growfs -M file_system /dev/md/rdsk/dn"

Do you want to grow the metadevice now or later?
