Thanks to all who replied, 

The solution that worked for me is the one proposed by Damien Kilkenny:

Hi Folks, 

On a V480 with Solaris 9 and 16Gb RAM, I'm trying to decrease the size of
swapvol from 22Gb to 16Gb. If I try # vxresize -g rootdg swapvol 16384m I
vxvm:vxresize: ERROR:  resizing volume other than FSGEN or RAID5 can result
in loss of data. Use -f option to force resize this volume. I tried with the
-f option: it didn't complain, but it didn't do it either.

Any idea how this can be accomplished?
(even better without rebooting or going to single user mode?)

I will summarize

Thanks in advance
