Need to add space to file system but already at Max Logical Partition

Hi,
I have a IBM AIX 5.3 machine.  There is a file system that I need to add space to.  I have a NetApp disk array and have available space to add.  But when I try to add Logical Partitions to the Logical Volume, it shows I am already at the max Logical Partition number.  

So how do I add more space that I can use in the file system that is on this logical volume?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi,

issue lslv lvname

On the left you will see "MAX LPS:"

This is the current limit for the number of logical partitions.

Increase this value at wish with

chlv -x new_max lvname

You are free to choose an arbitrary high value for new_max - this limit is only a precaution against configuration errors (typos) and has no influence on performane, space requirements or the like.

Can this chlv -x command be run while the system is running in production?
