    If this is an LVM volume and you have OnlineJFS, simply:
    lvextend -L <10240 + current_size_in_MB> /dev/vg00/lvol_number
    fsadm -F vxfs -b (expr 1024 \* <10240 + current_size_in_MB>) /home

    If you don't have OnlineJFS, you'll need to:
    lvextend the volume as above
    umount /home
    extendfs -F vxfs /dev/vg00/rlvol_number
    mount /home
