Pinned topic 0516-404 allocp error when chfs -a size, or extendlv

‏2007-01-30T16:23:59Z |
When I tried to increase the size of my /opt, is 96% full, by "chfs -a size=+128M /opt", I will get this error,"This system cannot fulfill the allocation request.
There are not enough free partitions or not enough physical volumes
to keep strictness and satisfy allocation requests. The command
should be retried with different allocation characteristics.
even with smit to do a increase the lv - extendlv hd10opt 1 hdisk1, gave me the same error. As I checked with # lsvg -p rootvg
rootvg:
PV_NAME PV STATE TOTAL PPs FREE PPs FREE DISTRIBUTION
hdisk0 active 546 76 00..00..00..00..76
hdisk1 active 546 370 109..15..28..109..109
since each PP is 128M of each hdisk, why can not I extend the /opt, even the /opt is mirrored in both hdisks? The max # LP of this lv is already assigned to 128.

    When I log out and log in tried again the chfs and it worked. Apparently someting was affected by my previous commands - chpv -a n hdisk0, I tried to add the size in hdisk1 only, but the /opt is mirrored in both hdisk1 and hdisk0. Hoever, even I -chpv -a y hdisk0 (reverse the allocable of hdisk0), continuing with the chfs still caused the same error.

    Hello, You may check the max. number of PPs that will be allocated to the LV. it is by default is 512 PP, you may change it by using chlv -x  command
