To increase the size of the storage, you should know the correct syntax to be used.

snapdrive storage resize -dg file_spec { -growby | -growto } size [-addlun [-igroup ig_name [ig_name …​]]] [{ -reserve | - noreserve}]] [-fstype type] [-vmtype type]

You cannot use the snapdrive storage resize command to reduce the size of an entity. You can only increase the size using this command.

The snapdrive storage resize command does not support directly on logical volumes or file systems. For example, you cannot use the snapdrive storage resize command to resize a file system on a LUN.

Result: This command increases the size of the storage entity (logical volume or disk group) by either of the following:

  • Adding bytes to storage (-growby).

  • Increasing the size to the byte size you specify (-growto).
