When adding additional space to a filesystem, is there a way to easily calculate the block size? It seems confusing to have to convert the number of free partitions into blocks of 512 bytes. Thanks
Not that I know of, though you may be able to script this one. Typically you'd do it this way, mkfs -G -M /current/mount /dev/rdsk/cXtYdZsA newsize. What has worked for me in the past, has been putting a table together on your own, with various block/mg/byte configs, that you can work with on the fly.
