Thanks to all who replied.

Original question was is there a SDS equivalent to the vxassist maxgrow
and there isn't (reason why I couldn't find it in the manual). Special
thanks to Adam Tomkinson who gave detailed instructions for growing SDS
file system/volume:

Yes, Metattach and growfs are the way to go:

Extending a metadevice
# metattach d1 c3t1d0s2
extends a metadevice by concatenating a slice to the end. It does not
a filesystem.

# growfs /dev/md/rdsk/d1

If the metadevice is not mounted, the above command extends the
to include the added section. You cannot shrink this filesystem later.

# growfs -M /export/home /dev/md/rdsk/d1

If the metadevice is mounted, the above command will extend the
filesystem to
include the concatenated section. Again, you cannot shrink the
filesystem later.

Some clarification, I am looking for an equivalent command to the
Veritas vol mgr vxassist maxgrow command in SDS so I can see how much
available space I have to grow the current FS. I googled, looked in
docs.sun and and couldn't find it. In addition, since I
am not familiar with SDS commands and they seem more cryptic than Vxvm
(or maybe its what you're used to), I wanted to make sure metattach and
growfs were the way to go. The documentation isn't that clear.

Hi all,

We mainly use Volume Manager but we have a server that has SDS 4.2.1
soft partitions setup that need their size increased. Can anyone tell me
how can you tell how much space there is available to each md and also
the proper commands to actually grow with ie; metattach then growfs?

File systems look like this:

/dev/md/dsk/d3       5161518  614843 4495060    13%    /u05/oraredo1
