Use "vxasisst maxgrow" to see

Use "vxasisst maxgrow" to see how much space is available and add extra disks to diskgroup using "vxdg adddisk" if there is not enough space.  Then use "vxresize" which resizes both volume and fileystem.  Example:

vxassist -g testdg maxgrow vol1

vxresize -g testdg vol1 +50g

Hello, depends on how are you

Hello,

depends on how are you resizing the volume & filesystem..

1. You may resize by adding new Luns to diskgroup

2. You may resize by extending existing Lun from Storage (Dynamic Lun expansion)

For first case, refer

For later one, refer
