Cannot inrease var filesystem

Cannot inrease var filesystem

Hi All,

When i tried to increase the var filesystem, i get the below error:

Appreciate your support


RE: Cannot inrease var filesystem

Because you do not have enough room on the volume group. Increase the underlying VG and then try again.

RE: Cannot inrease var filesystem

As iggsterman responded, you do not have enough available space.
Run lsvg rootvg and look for FREE PPs. You will see that you do not have enough to fulfill your request. You need to add another hdisk with extendvg or if you are using SAN storage you can simply increase the existing LUN size followed by chvg -g rootvg (g=grow). Then, you should be able to add space to the /var filesystem.
