       fsvoladm - VxFS volume administration utility


       The  utility  performs  administrative tasks, such as adding, removing,
       resizing, and encapsulating volumes in a specified VERITAS File System.
       mount_point  specifies  the  directory  on  which  the  file  system is

       volname specifies the volume within the volume set.

       By default, size, bias, and newsize are	specified  in  units  of  disk
       blocks  bytes).	 However,  you can append or to the number to indicate
       that the value is in kilobytes,	megabytes,  gigabytes,	or  terabytes,

       Adds a volume to a file system.	The new space is available for alloca‐

       Removes an encapsulated volume from a file system
	      and restores the original contents of the volume.	  This	opera‐
	      tion  can	 fail  if  there  were significant changes to a file's
	      allocations on disk since encapsulation.	A volume  encapsulated
	      with a bias cannot be deencapsulated.

       Adds a volume to a file system,
	      making  the  contents of that volume, starting from offset bias,
	      available as a file instead of free space.

	      The size of the encapsulated file is size - bias.	 bias must  be
	      smaller  than  size,  and be a multiple of the file system block

	      The default value of bias is 0.

       Displays the volumes in a file system.

       Removes a volume from a file system.

       Resizes one of the volumes in a file system.
	      In some circumstances, the command cannot	 resize	 a  100%  full
	      file  system due to lack of space for updating structural infor‐

	      Check VxFS file systems on a regular basis; increase their  size
	      if  they approach 100% capacity.	This problem can also occur if
	      the file system is very busy.  Free up space or reduce  activity
	      on the file system and try the resize again.

       The  following command adds the volume that is 10 gigabytes in size, to
       the file system

       The following command removes the volume from the file system

       The following command resizes the volume in the file  system  from  its
       current size to 20 GB:

       The following command displays the volumes in the file system

       The  following  command encapsulates the volume The volume is ten giga‐
       bytes in size, resides in the file system and has the file name

       The following command de-encapsulates the volume that was  encapsulated
       in the previous example:

       df_vxfs(1M), fsapadm(1M), fsvoladm(1M), mount_vxfs(1M), vxvset(1M),
