Expand NFS volume


Hi all,

I'm on DOT 8.1.

Usually I use iSCSI lun, but now I have an NFS volume exported.

What I'm not sure is, can I expand an NFS volume just like that?

vol vol1 +200G

Do I have to do something about the NFS?

Reason I ask is for iSCSI it's considered as block device, DOT doesn't have to concern about the filesystem.

But since NFS is filesystem, I think DOT should do something to expand the volume? Does DOT do it automagically or I have to do something?

Thank you.

No, you do not need to do anything. Command is effective immediately. It is “vol size” BTW (“size” was missing in your example).
