VPLex Metro - increasing VNX LUNs

m1ck99 used Ask the Experts™
We have a EMX Vplex Metro with two VNX 5800s and two VPLEX (GeoSynchrony 5.3) in different Datacentres.
I have asked to increase the capacity of two VNX LUNs. While I am familiar with increasing LUNs in VNX, I am a bit uncertain with the order and procedure of  using the Storage Volume expansion method.

Can anyone highlight the steps in detail?

Many thanks
