Hello freebsd-questions,

There were 3 drives in vinum concat drive. Now I add fourth

# vinum list

D vinumdrive2           State: up       /dev/ad3s1d     A: 0/152625 MB (0%)
D vinumdrive1           State: up       /dev/ad2s1d     A: 0/152625 MB (0%)

V bigger                State: up       Plexes:       1 Size:        596 GB

1 plexes:
P bigger.p0           C State: up       Subdisks:     4 Size:        596 GB

4 subdisks:
S bigger.p0.s0          State: up       D: vinumdrive1  Size:        149 GB

S bigger.p0.s3          State: up       D: vinumdrive4  Size:        149 GB  

#growfs -y /dev/vinum/bigger
bad inode number 1 to ginode

Where is the problem? At start partition was 432 GB, using step by step
growing(increasing -s option in growfs) I make 534GB and then I have
the same:
#growfs -y -s 1156529856 /dev/vunim/bigger
bad inode number 1 to ginode

in -N (Test mode) the same...

Please help there are approximately 40 gb space on drive4 but
partition couldn't be increased...

P.S. FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE

Best regards,
