Hi All,

I have to delete the lv and create the lv  and filesystem with 512 block size in AIX 5.3. What is the command for the same. for e.g. I have 2 filesystems :

/dev/erppt_redo001lv      /oracle/test/redo001
/dev/erppt_redo002lv      /oracle/test/redo002

Now, I want to delete redo002 lv  and re-create it with 512 bytes block size. How can I do that. Also what is the procedure of deleting the filesytem and re-creating it and how can we rename the lv in AIX.
