RS6000 model f40, aix 4.2, (2) 2.2 GB drives - first drive=rootvg, 2nd
I added 2 4.5 GB drives and when I tried to add one of the new drives to
the rootvg, I received a message
5016-876 extendvg: warning, the physical partition size of 4 requires
the creation of 1089 partitons...
The system limitation os 1016 per disk.
I understand why this has happened, and I assume I have to do the
make a mksysb backup
backup my datavg
boot up off the mksysb and restore the tape
The reason why I am adding a 2nd drive to my rootvg group is because I
want to mirror the rootvg.
So when I restore the mksysb tape is there any way of only restoring to
the 2.2GB drive and changing
the physical partition size from 4 to say 16 which should increase my
system limitation above to 1016?
Thank you in advance for your help.
