ACFS resizing (adding disks/luns to existing mount points)

I'm hoping this is the correct location to ask this question.


We have upgraded to R12 EBS and DB (RAC) and been on the environment for about a year, however I just learned that we are going to need to put additional environments on the same hardware. In order to accomidate this I'll need to add space to the existing mount points that I use to store the binaries and executables. I wasn't involved in the initial building of the system and am not familar with ACFS so I'm not sure of the correct way to add storage to an existing file system.


For example we have 2 mount points, /a01 and /a02. /a01 holds the oracle home while /a02 is used for exports/imports and temporary storage.


Both are ACFS volumes for example /a01 consist of 4 member disks:






Each member is 50 Gig in size. If I wanted to add storage to the mount point I'm assuming that I can just add more member disks, right?


If so do I have to unmount it, does resizing wipe the data? What is the correct proceedure to accomplish this?
