Use one of the following methods to expand a soft partition:
From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the Volumes node. Choose the soft partition you want to expand, then choose Action->Properties, then follow the instructions on screen. For more information, see the online help.
To add space to a soft partition, use the following form of the metattach command:
metattach [-s disk-set] soft-partition size
disk-set is the name of the disk set in which the soft partition exists.
soft-partition is the name of an existing soft partition.
size is the amount of space to add.
This example shows how you can attach space to a soft partition and then expand the file system that sits on it while the soft partition is online and mounted is online:
# mount /dev/md/dsk/d20 /home2 # metattach d20 10g # growfs -M /home2 /dev/md/rdsk/d20
