And to any other replies coming in.



My question was:

Does Solaris 2.5.1 have a logical volume manner, or any other utility
for making a filesystem span more than one
physical drive? One a drive is in use, is there any easy way to
dynamically extend a filesystem on it to include
another drive? Thanks.


Answer is:

There's a separate CD-ROM called "Solstice DiskSuite" which will do
the job - also, "Veritas Volume Manager".
Overall, respondents seem to prefer Veritas to DiskSuite. DiskSuite
comes free with the 2.6 Solaris distribution;
not sure about 2.5.1. Off I go to hunt for the CDs!
