Hi All -

Thanks for everyone that contributed. The problem was that there should be a
small amount of filesystem available for the resize to take place.

Veritas 4.1 MP1 / V480 / Solaris 10 latest patch release

Can anyone help out , I've tried a few commands to resize the filesystem
including vxassist and vxresize, but still running into some errors.

I should be able to increase this size by at least 1.2gig , however I am
getting a error.
