Solaris Volume Manager Roadmap—Storage Capacity



For Instructions

Set up storage

Create storage that spans slices by creating a RAID-0 or a RAID-5 volume. The RAID-0 or RAID-5 volume can then be used for a file system or any application, such as a database, that accesses the raw device.

How to Create a RAID-0 (Stripe) Volume

How to Create a RAID-0 (Concatenation) Volume

How to Create a RAID-1 Volume From Unused Slices

How to Create a RAID-1 Volume From a File System

How to Create a RAID-5 Volume

Expand an existing file system

Increase the capacity of an existing file system by creating a RAID-0 (concatenation) volume, then adding additional slices to that volume.

How to Expand Storage Capacity for Existing Data

Expand an existing RAID-0 (concatenation or stripe) volume

Expand an existing RAID-0 volume by concatenating additional slices to it.

How to Expand an Existing RAID-0 Volume

Expand a RAID-5 volume

Expand the capacity of a RAID-5 volume by concatenating additional slices to it.

How to Expand a RAID-5 Volume

Increase the size of a UFS file system on an expanded volume

Expand a file system by using the growfs command to expand the size of a UFS while it is mounted and without disrupting access to the data.

How to Expand a File System

Subdivide slices or logical volumes into smaller partitions, breaking the 8-slice hard partition limit

Subdivide logical volumes or slices by using soft partitions.

How to Create a Soft Partition

Create a file system

Create a file system on a RAID-0 (stripe or concatenation), RAID-1 (mirror), RAID-5, or on a soft partition.
