Default growfs

So I have googled a fair amount of times and read the man page and I am very confused.

I have a sparc Netra T1 AC 200, running FBSD 6-stable. It had dual 18GB disks in a gmirror raid 1, As can be imagined, ran out of space quickly. I purchased 2 73GB scsi drives. I removed 1 of the 18GBs, placed 73GB in, rebuild the mirror, removed the other 18GB, inserted 73GB, rebuilt mirror. Ok, so I have 2 73GB drives in there in a mirror (/dev/mirror/gm0) they are partitioned as such:

Code:
Otter# df -h
Filesystem          Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/mirror/gm0a    501M     70M    392M    15%    /
devfs               1.0K    1.0K      0B   100%    /dev
/dev/mirror/gm0e    501M    356K    461M     0%    /tmp
/dev/mirror/gm0f     11G    9.8G    771M    93%    /usr
/dev/mirror/gm0d    1.9G    165M    1.6G     9%    /var
I want to grow only the, /usr partition to fill the rest of the disk. How do I go about doing. Every how to I see tells me to use fdisk, which isn't a program on sparc64. I have the original 18GB drives still so if all goes to hell, I can stick those back in and have all my data, not to mention it wouldn't be the end of the world if everything went away.

What do I need to do? I have console access to this box via Lights Out Management and another box with a serial port on the network (best part about this server hands down) so single user mode is easy to get to.

tl;dr: How do I use growfs to expand my /usr partition?

Thanks!!!!

The growfs(8) manual is pretty clear about this, from the looks of your setup.. /usr is on the last partition, if no other partition exists directly after gm0f physically.. then all you have to do is modify the label, expand f, and run growfs gm0f.

Please post the output of bsdlabel(8) for gm0.

Good luck..

Code:
Otter# bsdlabel /dev/mirror/gm0
bsdlabel: a -m <architecture> option must be specified

Otter# bsdlabel -m sparc64 /dev/mirror/gm0
bsdlabel: Unsupported architecture
Code:
The -m machine argument forces bsdlabel to use a layout suitable for a
     different architecture.  Current valid values are i386, amd64, ia64,
     pc98, and alpha.  If this option is omitted, bsdlabel will use a layout
     suitable for the current machine.
it would appear no sparc64 support :-\

Google time go!
Answer: sunlabel

Ok, now to stumble through this.

Code:
# /dev//mirror/gm0:
text: FreeBSD17G cyl 2200 alt 2 hd 255 sec 63
bytes/sector: 512
sectors/cylinder: 16065
sectors/unit: 35343000

8 partitions:
#
# Size is in sectors.
# Offset is in cylinders.
#    size       offset
#    ---------- ----------
  a:    1060290          0
  b:    4144770         66
  c:   35343000          0
  d:    4176900        324
  e:    1060290        584
  f:   24900750        650
ok so sunlabel -e mirror/gm0 puts me into an edit mode, cool. Now, how do I find the correct size of my new drive as this is my old drives size etc.?

I'm sorry guys I hate to nag, I just have no idea what to do in this situation. I'd just reinstall but the CD drive is bad in this box and I have no other computers with SCSI ports.

Well, help us all along.. post a dmesg, do you have the new disks in now? we can only work with what little information you gave us.

The label seems to indicate you have the 18G drives in still.. so either you need to reconfigure the array in some way, or install the new disks.. that's my opinion.

New drives are in running. I mentioned my method of how I did this in a previous reply. (Remove one drive, insert new drive, rebuild mirror, remove second drive, inset new drive, rebuild mirror)

Well, what happens if you specify '*' as the size of the 'f' partition (which is /usr, yes?) in sunlabel?
Hint: read the man pages....
