what does "vxassist -g dgname maxsize" give you?
Is vxvm aware of the new disks? can you see them? what is their status?
vxdisk -eo alldgs list

Hi. Why would I have duplicate file:
# vxdg free
GROUP        DISK         DEVICE       TAG          OFFSET    LENGTH    FLAGS
mss01dg      tormss01-01  c6t50002AC000B505E0d0s2 c6t50002AC000B505E0d0 0         2448      -

they're different space on the same device. Notice the offset and length values.

Great!  Disk 21 is missing. Can I run the import command without it being disruptive? We have already expanded the LUNS then noticed 21 was missing after running vxvg free.

When you say "missing", do you actually know you have it?

vxprint -dg mss01dg      

Does  tormss01-21 show up anywhere? Is it part of any volumes that you know of?

vxprint -vthg mss01dg | grep tormss01-21
