Oracle HSM (SAM-QFS): How to Online Grow a Filesystem (Doc ID 1339502.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 11, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (HSM) and StorageTek QFS Software - Version 5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As filesystems fill, it may become necessary to add meta devices or data devices to your QFS or SAM file system.
This document will discuss how to do an 'online' grow.

HSM Engineering strongly recommends upgrading to the official 6.1-04 patch release prior to doing an online grow of a filesystem.  This is because of a bitmap issue found, when growing a large filesystem without adding a metadata device, that could potentially cause data loss.  This was filed as bug 29455600.  Reference Document 2525959.1 for more information on this issue.
