    growfs for /var failing with deadlock msg


      i am trying to expand my .var filesystem.  I have expanded the metadevice but the growfs command keeps detecting a deadlock and does not expand the fs. 

      Would appreciate any thoughts on why this is occuring.


      growfs -M /var /dev/md/rdsk/d3

      /var: Deadlock situation detected/avoided

      df -h /var

      Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on

      /dev/md/dsk/d3         7.7G   5.5G   2.1G    73%    /var


      metastat -c d3

      d3               m   16GB d13 d23

          d13          s   16GB c3t1d0s0

          d23          s   16GB c3t2d0s0
