Does anyone know the equivalent command for vgdisplay, pvdisplay, lvdisplay on a solaris 8 server?
I am wanting to extend a filesystem on the server but cannot determine if fs is possible for extension.

Thanks all.

RE: vgdisplay

You can use growfs to increase the size of ufs filesystems under the control of the Solaris Volume Manager.

RE: vgdisplay

you can not grow /var or / even with growfs. all other filesystems growfs is a viable solution as KenCunningham stated. I've used it many times in the past.

RE: vgdisplay

I've used growfs to grow / previously, but I was wet behind the ears at the time. It worked, but I wouldn't recommend it!
