Changing Volume Group Type and Missing File Systems

I am in my cube; it is 7 o’clock in the morning. My horoscope says that today I will have an interesting day. Really? Who cares? It is just a horoscope!
A few minutes later, I receive an email from our automated Work Order system. A users requests expansion of a particular file system. Well, if this is not a “routine” process then I do not know what a “routine” process is.

It did not take long to find out the volume group did not have the required 100GB of free capacity left. So, I reassigned the Work Order to our SAN team – “Please expand any of these hdisks (LUNs) by 100GB”. It was a matter of a few minutes and I had the Order back – my request has been processed.

The application was already “down”, the file systems “un-mounted” and I was ready to proceed with the “routine”.
