SUMMARY: Resizing a Veritas Volume

Thanks to all the replies.

I tried growfs but that did not work for me.

vxresize apparently is the right command

/usr/lib/vxvm/bin/vxresize data1 30g

But I got an error when trying this

ERROR: Problem running mkfs command for volume data1, in diskgroup del8

So I'm going to backup the data and recreate the volume manually
and then restore the data.

My original question:

I am running Veritas Volume Manager 3.0.4. I went into the GUI
and selected a volume and under actions I selected resize volume 
and increased it by 5 gigs. However, the file system itself did not 
grow. Anyone know the command to grow the file system as well?
growfs, tunefs, mkfs????
