I always use =+ (equals plus) and =- (equals minus) to increase and decrease file systems. <br /> e.g. chfs -a size=+5G / <br /> chfs -a size=-5G / <div>&nbsp;</div> I never know that +=, -= are the alternative ways until reading this article, thank you, AnthonyEnglish! <br />

I assure you, it was quite by accident! I meant to write it the way you do <br /> chfs -a size=+5G /mount_point <div>&nbsp;</div> Does the other way work?

Oh, just tried the other way you mentioned on my AIX server, it doesn't work! <div>&nbsp;</div> # chfs -a size+=1G / <br /> chfs: 0506-901 The attribute format is Attribute=Value. <div>&nbsp;</div> But thanks for correcting them!
