Subject: Growing soft partition


I have a 169G RAID 5 LUN (RAID MANAGER) on a 420r Solaris 9 with the
following config:


d101: Soft Partition
    Device: d100
    State: Okay
    Size: 104857600 blocks (50 GB)
        Extent              Start Block              Block count
             0                        1                104857600

d100: Concat/Stripe
    Size: 355221504 blocks (169 GB)
    Stripe 0:
        Device     Start Block  Dbase        State Reloc Hot Spare
        c1t4d0s0          0     No            Okay   Yes

I want to grow partition d101 from 50g to 100g. Is this possible with

I can create another partition from d100 but what I'd like to do is grow
d101 from d100.

It seems all the docs show how to add new disks and grow the filesystem
on the attached new metadevices.
