expand an NSS volume

Hi,
I want to expand an NSS volume that resides on a local disk - I assigned it a LUN from our SAN and the server was able to see it as a device, I initialized it, and then grew the pool successfully to show the additional storage, however the volume is still showing the original size, am I missing something?
Thanks!

How is the volume defined? Fixed size or "all available"

Re: expand an NSS volume

Is the volume set to use all the size of the pool? If not, change it so that it is.

Also, if the local disk isn't RAIDed or set up with redundancy, the OP may want to make sure the entire volume is on the SAN device, to avoid the situation where a problem with the drive makes all the data unaccessible.

If the OP already did this, I apologize for not reading correctly.
