Diskinfo not matching the amount of space given

Diskinfo not matching the amount of space given

We have an HPUX server that has LUNs attached. One specific one has 100GB
presented to it from the storage team. When I attempt to access the space
I'm not getting anything showing the space is there. My diskinfo output is:

SCSI describe of /dev/rdisk/disk32:
vendor: DGC
product id: VNX7500WDVR
type: direct access
size: 57671680 Kbytes
bytes per sector: 512

The disk is claimed from what I can see in IOSCAN

disk 32 64000/0xfa00/0xa esdisk CLAIMED DEVICE DGC
/dev/disk/disk32 /dev/rdisk/disk32

I moved out what I thought was the space slide ruler thing by "vgmodify -a
-p 7 -e 15356 -E PBOREP". It cannot see the space there either.

What else can I try to get the space? This is a production server, so
rebooting is not an option at this time.
