Increase Sys volume space

My sys volume is running low on space. I have plenty of unused space on the hard drive. What's the safest way to increase the size of the Sys volume?

NSS or TFS? Create an empty partition and add to the volume.

Re: Increase Sys volume space

Each time i try to create an empty partition it wants me to name a pool and name the volume. How do I create a simple empty one?

Re: Increase Sys volume space

I found it in the nssmu configuration.
Thanks anyway.

Re: Increase Sys volume space

This is done easily through nssmu if the volumes are nss. Open nssmu, go to pools, highlight the sys pool, hit the insert key and select the partition you want it on and the size you want it to be. This will expand the sys volume to the size you want it.

Re: Increase Sys volume space

Can I easily increase the Novell partition size, then volume sizes by first mirroring to a new larger drive, then doing the below mentioned process to use the free space on the new drive to increase the Novell partition?

Thanks
